Danilo Luiz da Silva (born 15 July 1991), known simply as Danilo, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for English club Manchester City as a right back, defensive midfielder.

He began his career with América Mineiro before moving to Santos, where he scored the goal that won the 2011 Copa Libertadores. In January 2012 he moved to Porto, where he won consecutive Primeira Liga titles, and signed for Real Madrid for €31.5 million in 2015; two years later, he joined Manchester City.

Danilo was first capped by the senior Brazil team in 2011, also winning the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup and a silver medal at the 2012 Olympic tournament.

Club career[edit]

Early years / Santos[edit]

Danilo was born in Bicas, Minas Gerais. He played youth football with Tupynambás Futebol Clube and América Futebol Clube,[2] and competed at senior level with the latter club in the Campeonato Mineiro and the Série C, winning the latter in 2009 and gaining promotion.

In May 2010, Danilo was transferred to Santos FC. Investor DIS Esporte acquired 37.5% of his economic rights, Santos another 37.5% for free and the remaining 25% were retained by América (MG).[3] He won the Campeonato Paulista in 2011, and competed in two Série A seasons with the club.

Danilo played the full 90 minutes of both legs of the 2011 Copa Libertadores Finals against Peñarol, the first in central midfield and the second at right back, and scored the decisive goal in a 2–1 victory following a goalless first match.[4]

Porto[edit]

In early January 2012, following the 2011 FIFA Club World Cup, Danilo signed for FC Porto in Portugal until June 2016, for €13 million[5] and with a €50 million release clause.[6][7] He played understudy to Cristian Săpunaru in his beginnings, but soon became first-choice for the Vítor Pereira-led side, with countryman Alex Sandro – who signed at the same time – featuring in the other defensive wing for back-to-back Primeira Liga conquests.

Danilo scored his fourth competitive goal of the 2014–15 season on 18 February 2015, netting from a penalty kick to make it 1–1 at FC Basel in the UEFA Champions League first knockout stage.[8]

Real Madrid[edit]

On 31 March 2015, it was announced that Danilo would join Real Madrid in July, with the Spaniards paying €31.5 million for his services and signing him to a six-year contract.[9][10] He made his debut on 23 August, with a goalless draw at promoted Sporting de Gijón which was also the season opener.[11] On 24 October he scored his first goal for the team, in a 3–1 away win against Celta de Vigo.[12]

Danilo contributed with seven appearances in the 2015–16 edition of the Champions League, as the tournament ended in win. In the final against Atlético Madrid, he came on as a substitute for injured Dani Carvajal early into the second half of a 1–1 draw (penalty shootout triumph).[13]

In 2016–17, profitting from several physical ailments to Carvajal,[14] Danilo contributed with 17 games and one goal[15] as the club was crowned champions for the first time in five years.[16][17] He took part in three games in the campaign's Champions League,[18][19][20] helping it to the second consecutive win in the latter tournament.[21]

Manchester City[edit]

On 23 July 2017, it was announced Danilo had signed for English club Manchester City on a five-year contract,[22][23] for a reported £26.5 million fee.[24] He scored his first goal for his new team on 23 December, replacing Fabian Delph late into the home fixture against Bournemouth and netting the final 4–0.[25]

International career[edit]

Courtesy of his Santos performances, Danilo made his debut for Brazil on 14 September 2011 at the age of just 20, featuring in the first leg of that year's Superclásico de las Américas, a 0–0 away draw against Argentina (2–0 aggregate win).[26] In the same year, he started for the under-20s at the FIFA U-20 World Cup, with the tournament in Colombia ending in conquest.

Danilo represented the under-23 team at the 2012 Summer Olympics, playing four games and scoring against New Zealand in the group stage (3–0)[27] in an eventual silver medal conquest.
