Manchester City captain, Fernandinho has agreed on a new one-year contract with the Premier League champions.
The Brazilian international, 36, whose leadership played a pivotal role in reigniting City’s season will now spend his 10th season with the club
According to Jack Gaughan of the Mail, Fernandinho and Manchester City have reached an agreement over a one-year contract extension for the Brazilian midfielder.
Gaughan states that Fernandinho is viewed as an ‘invaluable member‘ of Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad at Manchester City – which emphasises the club’s insistence on retaining his services beyond the summer.
The official confirmation of the contract extension will arrive before Manchester City begin their pre-season training ahead of the new campaign, with Guardiola’s side set to meet Barcelona in one fixture.
