City have made their third signing within a week by bringing Brazilian midfielder Geovanni to the Club.

He passed a medical at City’s Carrington training ground today, but is not expected to join the squad on the pre-season tour of Sweden

The 27-year-old arrives on a free transfer and has signed a one-year contract.

Most recently with Brazilian side Cruzeiro, Geovanni brings a wealth of Champions League experience with him, having played for Barcelona and Benfica, as well as having four international caps under his belt.

His diving header, when he stole in between Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville, helped the Portuguese giants dump Manchester United out of the Champions League at the group stage in December 2005, and in total he scored 17 times in 94 appearances for Benfica.
