Man City finalise the Belgian winger Jeremy Doku signing

Manchester City has officially announced the signing of Belgium winger Jeremy Doku, following the agreement of a €65 million (£56m/$70m) transfer fee with Rennes.

The winger, who had been playing for Rennes in Ligue 1, has joined the Premier League champions on a five-year contract. During his time at Rennes, Doku showcased his abilities by scoring 10 goals and providing 12 assists across various competitions over three seasons.

This signing marks City’s third addition to the squad during the summer transfer window, with midfielder Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea and defender Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig being the other two arrivals.

Doku’s arrival will to fill the void left by Riyad Mahrez, who recently departed City to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli. Mahrez had enjoyed a successful five-year tenure at the Etihad Stadium, winning multiple trophies.

However, Doku’s presence in the squad may result in reduced playing time for Cole Palmer, who has had a promising start to the season but had limited involvement in City’s journey to securing the treble.

“This is a great day for me, both personally and professionally. Manchester City are the best team in world football, so to be joining them is something very special for me and my family,” Doku told City’s official website.

“I am a young player with so much learning and improving to do. Working with Pep and his staff, and playing alongside these work-class players, will make me a much better player. I feel sure of that. Watching City last season was amazing. To win the Treble is the hardest thing in football and they did it. You cannot imagine how exciting it is to be joining this team. I cannot wait to get started. Hopefully I can make the fans happy.”
