The 27-year-Old was born in Lisbon and came through the youth system at Benfica. He failed to make much of a dent at his hometown club, however, with his breakthrough coming at Monaco. He left them for Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering City in 2017 and has since become one of Europe’s finest midfielders. He’s earned 70 caps for Portugal.
