Manchester City 'Moving' To Trigger £25 Million Buy-Back Clause For Former Player

Manchester City 'Moving' To Trigger £25 Million Buy-Back Clause For Former Player

Manchester City are set to trigger a £25 million buy-back clause for former player Douglas Luiz.

The Brazilian was signed from Vasco da Gama for £10 million in 2017 but didn't make a single competitive appearance for City, having twice been loaned out to sister club Girona before he was sold to Aston Villa in a deal worth a reported £15 million.

Luiz impressed in his first season in the Premier League, making 42 appearances in all competitions as Villa avoided relegation on the final day.

After reportedly pocketing £1 million due to Villa staying up, City are keen on bringing Luiz back to the Etihad Stadium as per Globo Esporte.

When at City, the 22-year old was unable to secure a work permit - much to the frustration of Pep Guardiola - and so he never got a proper opportunity at the Blues.

However, fast forward to now and the situation appears to have changed. Luiz was successful in securing a permit after putting pen to paper at Villa, while the Birmingham Mail say he now has a two-year VISA, a provisional license and also passed an English exam two months back.

He's also become a full Brazil international, having made his debut for the Selecao in a 3-0 win over South Korea in November.

Well aware of his abilities and potential to improve, City rather smartly placed a buy-back clause in the deal that took him to Villa Park and might just have a ready-made replacement for fellow Brazilian Fernandinho, who is not getting any younger at 35.

Despite already drafting in Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake from Valencia and Bournemouth respectively, City are on the hunt for further reinforcements following a poor title defence and another disappointing Champions League quarter final exit.
