Kyle Walker Signed by Manchester City For World Record £53m Fee For A Defender

Kyle Walker has completed his signing with Manchester City from Tottenham Hotspur in a deal worth up to £53m that makes the 27-year-old right-back the world’s most expensive defender.
The right-back joins from Tottenham on a five-year deal and has opted to take the number two shirt.

He becomes City’s third signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of Bernardo Silva and Ederson.
Walker said;
“I am thrilled to be signing for City and can’t wait to get started,”  
“Pep Guardiola is one of the most respected managers in the world and I feel he can help me take my game to a new level.”
Txiki Begiristain, the Club’s Director of Football, added: 
“Kyle is a fine full-back, one capable of producing quality at both ends of the pitch. 
“We’ve followed his progress at Tottenham and have been really impressed by how he has developed. He is now one of the best right-backs in the Premier League and justifiably an England regular. 
“I am sure he will be a success at Manchester City this season and beyond.”
