A welcome addition to the squad, the 26-year-old can be deployed in a makeshift left-back role, as manager Pep Guardiola attempted at the back end of last season following his omission in favour of Kyle Walker.
Coming in for Benjamin Mendy, the Portugal international was used on that side against both Real Madrid and Lyon in the Champions League knockout rounds.
However, after starting against Spain on Wednesday, it appears he looks ready for competitive action and could feature for City against Arsenal next week.
Reacting to this team news, many Citizens are in awe whilst also having their say over a potentially crucial development.
