Manchester City’s Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho has signed a new contract with the blues, which will keep him at the Etihad for another 12 months.

The City captain, who signed from Shakhtar Donetsk for £34m in 2013, has been a vital part of the blues set-up. However, Ferna was named on City’s provisional list of players to be released at the end of the season, however, it was rumoured earlier in the month that he had signed a contract extension.

Now the club have confirmed the new deal and the midfield rock will stay at the blues for another 12 months.

In his time at City, Ferna has won 4 Premier League titles, 6 League Cup, a Community Shield and was named in the 2018-19 PFA Team of the Year.

Speaking after signing his new contract, Ferna said “In my head and my mind, the job is not done yet. And so that’s why I decided to stay here another year and try to help the team and the Club to achieve the goals that they’re looking for.

“In my point of view, we can do that, there’s still places to improve and to get those targets. And obviously, for me and for my family it’s a pleasure to stay in Manchester for one more year.

“If I can keep doing the same way, leading them inside the pitch, off the pitch, to help them to improve and get better and to perform better during the games, I would be the happiest person there.”

We’re looking forward to a further 12 months of another blue legend.
