Manchester City are set to trigger a £25 million buy-back clause for former player Douglas Luiz.

The Brazilian was signed from Vasco da Gama for £10 million in 2017 but didn't make a single competitive appearance for City, having twice been loaned out to sister club Girona before he was sold to Aston Villa in a deal worth a reported £15 million.

Luiz impressed in his first season in the Premier League, making 42 appearances in all competitions as Villa avoided relegation on the final day.

After reportedly pocketing £1 million due to Villa staying up, City are keen on bringing Luiz back to the Etihad Stadium as per Globo Esporte.
