We may be deep in the midst of World Cup action, but back home, clubs are still going about their daily business. Manchester City have made their second signing of the summer, with midfielder Fernando completing his move from Porto. Although there are no details available on the length of the contract, it's believed they paid about £12m to secure his services.
The 26-year-old began his career at Vila Nova in his native Brazil before moving to Porto in 2007. Since then, the team has won four Primeira Liga titles and two Portuguese Cups, while also lifting the Europa League trophy in 2011.
A defensive midfielder by trade, Fernando's likely been brought in to shore up the City squad, who will once again be preparing to make a challenge for the Champions League trophy, while at the same time defending their Premier League status as title-holders. Having already signed Bacary Sagna from Arsenal, it's rather evident that City know where their weakness are - and they're certainly not up top.
