The 19-year-old midfielder, a Brazil under-20 global, posted an image of himself at the 5 star Hotel Camiral ahead of his loan switch to Girona FC, which should be announced tomorrow or soon after.

19-year-old Douglas is expected to immediately head out on loan next season to City's sister club, Girona in Spain.

It remains to be seen as to whether Douglas will break into Pep Guardiola's first team in the 2017-18 season with competition stiff at Eastlands.

Douglas had a strong season with Vasco, which consequently earned him a role with Brazil's U20 squad earlier this year.

The 19-year-old turned out 25 times for Vasco Da Gama in his homeland after making his senior debut last term and has now been announced as a City player.

He attracted the attention of City's scouts based in South America and will follow in the footsteps of striker Gabriel Jesus, who has been a huge success following his move from Palmeiras in January. "Everyone here is looking forward to helping him develop his talent and progress in the game".

Douglas has signed a five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium and arrives 24 hours after City confirmed the £54million arrival of Kyle Walker from Tottenham.

Douglas is a Brazilian Under 20 worldwide and missed only one match this season for Vasco, who are now 10 in the Brazilian league.
