Man City Captain Fernandinho Signs New Two-Year Deal

Fernandinho has signed a new deal for Manchester City, which will keep him at the club until 2020.
His former deal would have expired in the summer. But City have warded off interest from clubs who would have been able to sign him this month ahead of a summer move.

Fernandinho has been a consistent factor in this season's record-breaking team of Pep Guardiola.

Fernandinho said on Manchester City's official website:

"This is a club with a fantastic future and I want to be a part of it for as long as possible," said Fernandinho. 

"I’m very, very happy to sign a new deal and to stay at this club. 

"It’s been a long journey since I joined and we’re going to continue going forward, trying to win trophies.

"This is the main target.  ‘I think I’ve improved a lot, especially this season. 

"It’s my second year under Pep (Guardiola) and of course I’ve improved a lot, with my team-mates, the whole team has improved. The way we’ve played this season, everyone is happy."
 Shortly after Fernandinho penned a new deal at City, he wrote on his Instagram page:

"I live a beautiful story of respect for this club. There is no doubt I have a lot of passion for what I do. The legacy I want to leave when I stop playing is that kind of club and fan relationship. I think this is very important in today's football.

"Essential factors made me decide to stay here. To continue the work, to win titles and to help Manchester City to consolidate as one of the best teams of the world. My family, who is already used to the city, was also preponderant for my choice.

To the fans and colleagues, my biggest thank you. Since my arrival at the club, I've always been very respected and you always gave me a huge support. I've already said that and I repeat: Citizens fans are the best in the world, for sure. Only you know the moments you lived together with the team. You never stopped supporting and believing, this is something I strongly admire and you must be applauded for that. COME ON, CITY!"
