Manchester City suffer an embarrassing gaffe during the announcement of club-record signing Ruben Dias, appearing to accidentally 'confirm' a deal for Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester City have accidentally 'confirmed' the arrival of Kalidou Koulibaly during their announcement of the deal to bring Ruben Dias to the club.

City had been heavily linked with a move for the Napoli centre-back but were ultimately put off by his asking price, instead turning their attention to Dias.

Pep Guardiola's side completed the club-record signing of Dias from Benfica earlier this week, splashing up to £65m on the 23-year-old.

However, when officially announcing the transfer on their website, the former champions made an embarrassing gaffe by giving fans the opportunity to ask their new signing Koulibaly a question.

Man City are not expected to move for any more centre-backs this summer, having already spent more than £100m on Nathan Ake and Dias.
