Man City found a replacement for Mahrez, Dribble King Jeremy Docu 5-year contract number 11

Manchester City filled the gap of Riyad Mahrez, who left the team. The 21-year-old young winger has signed a long-term contract.

Manchester City announced on its official website on the 25th that it has recruited Stadren (France) striker Jeremy Doku. The contract period is five years, and his transfer fee, known to the outside world, is 65 million euros (about 93.3 billion won). Doku is Manchester City’s third recruitment after Matteo Kovacic and Joshko Gvardiol.

Manchester City filled the gap with Doku as winger Riyad Mahrez left for Al Ahli in the Saudi professional league this summer.

“Manchester City is the best team in the world and it’s really special for me and my family to join this team,” Doku said through the club.

“I am a young player who is learning and improving a lot. Working with Pep and his staff and playing with the best players will make me a better player. “I’m sure,” he said. “Last season, Manchester City was amazing. Treble is the hardest thing in football. They did it. “You can’t even imagine how excited it is to join such a team,” he said, adding, “I want to join and start quickly.” 안전놀이터 추천

Doku, a 21-year-old Belgian winger, can play on both sides and is currently the highest-rated winger in Europe. He has already played 14 matches for the Belgian national team and has a lot of experience in the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Champions League in the Belgian and French leagues.

After starting his growth at the prestigious Anderlecht Academy in the Belgian League, he was promoted to an adult team in the summer of 2018 and started playing professionally at the age of 16. Having consistently played in the Belgian league and accumulated attack points, he moved to Stadren in the summer of 2020 and scored 12 goals and 10 assists in 92 games in three seasons.

In the 2022/23 season, he scored six goals and two assists in 29 games in League 1. Above all, Toku had 3.8 dribbles per 90 minutes, ranking in the top three in Europe’s top five leagues. Only Lee Kang-in (PSG) and Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid) showed higher dribbling success rates.

Toku’s performance continued as a representative of Belgium. He also gained experience in major tournaments by representing Belgium at the UEFA Euro 2020 and 2022 Qatar World Cup. In particular, Toku appeared as a substitute member at the Qatar World Cup and left a deep impression with a spectacular dribble that stirred the opposing defense.

In the 2021-22 season, hamstring and knee injuries occurred frequently, so he was absent for a long time, and in the 2022-23 season, there was also the aftermath of hamstring and leg injuries. Despite his injury, Doku, who has fast speed and dribbling ability, was a winger targeted by many big clubs, including Manchester City.

From the beginning of August, articles began to appear that Manchester City wanted Doku. On the 16th, Toku’s agent and brother Jefferson Doku wrapped up personal negotiations in Paris and the transfer process proceeded in a hurry as the player told Ren that he wanted to transfer to Manchester City.

Sam Lee, a British reporter for the global sports media The Athletic, said, “Stadren had set at least 80 million euros (about 114.9 billion won) for Doku’s transfer fee. However, the player only wanted to transfer to Manchester City, and accordingly, he agreed with Manchester City for 65 million euros,” he said.

In the 2023/24 season, Manchester City will try to win four consecutive league titles for the first time. Manchester City, which has won two consecutive games at the beginning of the season, will play Sheffield United in the third round of the league at 10 p.m. on the 27th.
