Fernandinho announces Man City’s exit

Fernandinho has lifted four Premier League titles with Manchester City.

Fernandinho has announced how he will depart Manchester City after the year as reported by Fabrizio Romano. The Brazil international, who would also turn 37 next month, has claimed that he is keen to leave the Blues and move to Brazil to maintain playing regular games. That will call for a finish to a historic nine-year City tenure wherein he lifted four Premier League crowns, six League Cups, an FA Cup, and featured in a Champions League finale. The Brazil international is indeed the club’s player with the most years of service and captain. 

The Blues had broached the likelihood of his sticking in some form, potentially even as a player, according to how well the campaign progressed, but a lack of appearances seems to have clinched the midfielder’s mind since he wishes to keep playing. Originally, Fernandinho claimed that he did not anticipate staying this year.


With City prepared to meet Atletico Madrid in the return leg of the quarter-final tomorrow evening, with a 1-0 edge from last week’s meeting at the Etihad Stadium, this year is Fernandinho’s last chance of winning the Champions League trophy.

Fernandinho has served for Manchester City since moving for £30 million from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, but despite roughly 400 outings and netting 25 goals with four Premier League crowns, he has barely started once this campaign. This year, the Brazil international has registered one Premier League start and has indicated that he would travel to his country this summer to revive his career.

Fernandinho’s departure will quite assuredly be hailed with emotions and tributes befitting one of the highest quality City players ever.
