The Portuguese international joined Manchester City from Benfica last September and instantly transformed the defence. For then a club record £63 million, Dias arrived at the Etihad Stadium with high expectations. 

Forming a formidable partnership with fellow central defender John Stones, Dias played a crucial part in a very successful 2020/21 campaign – securing both the Premier League and Carabao Cup titles.

Signing a new six-year deal today, Dias has extended his stay in blue till at least 2027. Speaking to the club's official website, Dias shared his delight in signing a contract extension.

“I’m very happy to sign the new deal. I have enjoyed every single minute of my time at City since joining last year," the 24-year-old began.
