Man City has completed the signing of Manuel Akanji from Borussia Dortmund.

A 41-cap Swiss international, Akanji made 158 appearances in four-and-a-half years at Dortmund.

“I am delighted to be here, and can’t wait to get started,” Akanji said.

“City have been one of the best teams in Europe over the last few seasons. They are brilliant to watch, play an exciting brand of football, and compete for trophies year in, and year out, so coming here feels like the perfect next step in my career.

He becomes the club’s fifth signing this summer, following Stefan Ortega Moreno, Kalvin Phillips, Sergio Gomez, and former Dortmund team-mate Erling Haaland to City, with Julian Alvarez also arriving following his loan spell with River Plate.
