The Portuguese club also confirmed they will get Nicolas Otamendi from the former Premier League champions.

The deal for Dias is worth an initial £62m, with a further £3m subject to add-ons.

It comes hours after Pep Guardiola’s men suffered a 5-2 home defeat to Leicester City.

In the statement, Benfica clarified they had agreed a separate fee of 15m euros (£13.6m) to sign Otamendi.

Both deals were subject to personal terms being finalised.

Guardiola has been seeking a right-sided centre-back since Vincent Kompany left last year.

Dias has impressed during three seasons at Benfica and was in Portugal’s 2018 World Cup squad.

The 23-year-old scored in Benfica’s 2-0 win over Moreinense on Saturday, after which he was pictured hugging Benfica’s sporting director, Rui Costa.
