Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Bernardo Silva from Monaco on a five-year-contract and he will join the EPL side on July 1.
Silva moved from Monaco for £43million as Pep Guardiola makes his first his in the transfer market ahead of the new season.

The Portuguese playmaker will arrive at the Etihad having just helped the French side to the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League semi-finals.
He began his career at Benfica, where he impressed for their B side in the Segunda Division, and in the summer of 2013 he went to the Under 19 European Championships where he was named in the top 10 talents by UEFA reporters after helping Portugal to the semi-finals of the competition.
He moved to Monaco in 2014 on a season-long loan move having made three appearances for Benfica’s first team – but so impressive were his displays in France, the deal was made permanent six months into the agreement.
