Manchester City has officially completed the signing of full-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth up to £50m. Walker has signed a five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium and will take over as starting right-back following the summer releases of Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna. He will wear the number two shirt.
The transfer puts him level with David Luiz’s 2014 move from Chelsea to Paris Saint-Germain as the world’s joint most expensive defender of all time.
Walker is the third major arrival at City this summer following the signings of Bernardo Silva and Ederson Moraes from Monaco and Benfica respectively, taking spending up to £127m.
Walker began his career at boyhood club Sheffield United, making his first-team debut as a teenager in 2008. He joined Tottenham for around £4.5m in 2009 and had played close to 230 times for Tottenham Hotspur before leaving.
