The 21-year-old returns to South America after struggling during loan spells at Deportivo La Coruña and Girona FC in Spain, and will hope playing for Flamengo in both the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A and Copa Libertadores will get his fledgling career back on track.
The Colombian international joined in 2016 for a reported fee of £4.75million and was immediate dispatched to Spain for experience, but neither of his two loan spells worked out.
Moreno began training with Flamengo yesterday while his new club waited for authorisation from City to announce him, and now the deal has been made official.
