The Brazilian International has played very well this season, and his contract with a Man City will expire at the end of the 2020-21 season.
However, Fernandinho starred in a match against PSG last night – the 36th birthday – and Pep Guardiola is said to be enjoying his captain’s leadership.
According to the Daily Mail, Fernandinho could decide to sign new terms with English Premier League champions’ nominees, and the club may be looking to keep him out of the club.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk lynchpin has made 347 games for the club since 2013, although he has started 11 Premier League games this season.
Should Fernandinho choose to oppose extending his contract with Man City beyond the summer, Pep Guardiola could try to strike a deal over West Ham United’s Declan Rice.
