According to Portuguese media outlet O Jogo, Manchester City have reached an agreement with Portuguese club Vizela for the temporary transfer of Diego Rosa.

Manchester City signed 19 year old Diego Rosa in February 2021 for €6million and immediately sent him on loan to Belgian side Lommel, who are also part of the City Group.

After spending one and a half seasons with the Belgium second division side, the Brazilian midfielder is now set to move to Portugal to play first division football.

Rosa left Brazil at the age of 18, and still hadn’t broken through for Grêmio before making the move to Manchester City.

Rosa still has three more years left on his Manchester City contract.
