Here’s why Manchester City’s Ruben Dias is the signing of the season

Remember when Leicester City beat Manchester City 5-2 early this season? It’s absolutely impossible to imagine someone putting 5 past City now, and one of the main reasons behind the sharp improvement defensively has been the arrival of Ruben Dias from Benfica.

The centre-back has kept 14 clean sheets, and has helped City achieve the best defensive record in the division, conceding 24 goals in 34 games this season. What’s more impressive is the fact that he has managed to keep up his performances against the big names as well. 

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are some of the world class names that the player has shut out this season. Add to that the fact that he is only 23 years old, and you’re looking at the best centre-back of this generation. 

It is without a doubt that Dias is the most underrated centre-back in Europe, and not enough football fans are giving the player the praise he so rightfully deserves. Vincent Kompany has been more than adequately replaced by the Portuguese, who arrived at the beginning of the season, for a fee worth £64.3 million.
