"When I decided it was time to leave Manchester City I only considered three options: the first was joining Real Madrid, the second was playing at Real Madrid and the third and last was playing at Real Madrid".

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has ruled out the possibility of midfielder, Phil Foden leaving the club this January transfer window.

Real Madrid have announced the signing of Brahim Diaz from Manchester City on a six-and-a-half-year contract.

'I understand the responsibility of playing with this shirt.

With Diaz's transfer set to go through, City must also decide on the futures of defender Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala, who are both out of contract at the end of June.

The Premier League champions are in the midst of selling the 19-year-old to Real Madrid after he turned down a bumper new deal at the Etihad.

With New Horizons on autopilot, Mission Control was empty at Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md. It is thought to be potato-shaped and dark-coloured with a touch of red, possibly from being zapped by cosmic rays for eons.

Back in the noughties, Real Madrid was a club that issued its intent to rival clubs across Europe by acquiring services of world's best players for world-record money. "That's why today I want to show my enormous satisfaction with the arrival of a player who has that special talent and those values that can make him very important to this team".

While Diaz has been signed with the long term in mind, Madrid desperately require a short-term lift after another desperate weekend.

Brahim Diaz completed his dream move to Real Madrid on Monday morning.

He only made 15 first-team appearances during his time at City and played just four times this season.

Manchester City have already suffered with the sale of youngster Jadon Sancho to Borussia Dortmund, where the Englishman has thrived, with other clubs keen to sign him up.
