City Perform U-Turn On Brazilian Star
Posted: 6 May 2021
Run-away English Premier League Champions Manchester City are considering a U-turn on potentially parting company with Fernandinho after his influential performance helped secure a maiden Champions League final appearance.
Fernandinho’s performance in City’s semi-final second leg victory over Paris Saint-Germain confirmed to the club they cannot afford to lose the Brazilian’s essential presence in the dressing room.
It’s claimed Fernandinho could be convinced to stay at the Etihad even after he retires from playing, with the club keen to harness his leadership qualities behind the scenes and within the youth system.
The Beautiful Game’s European Correspondent Chris Wheatley understands that The Blue half of Manchester will begin talks with the Brazilian in the next couple of weeks.
