Manchester City are giving serious consideration to the re-signing of Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa.

The 22-year-old was with City for two seasons, but was out on loan the entire time, before joining Villa in 2019.

A Brazil international, Luiz has impressed at Villa Park and now Pep Guardiola is thinking about bringing him back.

Globo Esporte says City will consider activating a buy-back clause of roughly £25 million to get the player.

Luiz would add competition in midfield for City as they lose David Silva and potentially others in the transfer window.
