It was initially thought Gomez, who made 49 appearances for Anderlecht last term under Vincent Kompany, would have been loaned out this season, but City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed he will stay and compete for the left-back position.

Gomez: Playing for Pep will be special
Gomez was on City’s radar when they were chasing a deal for Marc Cucurella, who ultimately signed for Chelsea.
“I am incredibly proud and happy to have joined Manchester City,” Gomez said after completing his move.
“City are the best team in England and in Pep Guardiola I have a chance to learn and develop under the most outstanding manager in world football.
“To be able to be part of this club is a dream come true for me and something any young player would aspire to.
“The number of trophies City have won over the past few years has been incredible and the style of football the team plays under Pep is the most exciting in Europe.
“Playing for and being guided by Pep and his coaches is going to be very special.
“I’ve heard so much about the City fans and how passionate they are, so I can’t wait to get started and to try and help the club achieve even more.”
