City announced Danilo’s signing on their official website on Sunday.
The deal is reported to have cost City £26.5m.
“City are delighted to announce signing of Danilo from Real Madrid,” a statement on City’s website reads.
“The 26-year-old has signed a five-year deal and has now joined his new teammates on the Club’s pre-season tour of America.”
“I am very, very happy to be joining Manchester City,” Danilo told mancity.com after agreeing personal terms and passing his medical.
“There has been strong interest from other Clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola. As soon as I heard of his interest, I knew immediately I wanted to be a City player.
“I can’t wait to get started and I’m looking forward to getting to know my new teammates over the coming weeks.”
Danilo signed for Real Madrid in 2015 for €31.5 million and won one LaLiga title, two Champions Leagues, a UEFA Super Cup and a FIFA Club World Cup.
