The Brazilian midfielder is expected to become a free agent by the end of this month and has been included in the Premier League’s list of players to be released this summer.
Fernandinho played a key role in Manchester City’s run of the UEFA Champions League final in the 2020-21 season, but speculation was rife about a possible contract extension.
According to The Mirror, Man city are still waiting for Fernandinho to commit to his future at the club, but the 36-year-old has been given a 2-year extension, with City determined to offer only one more year.
The report also added that Pep Guardiola is very sensitive to Fernandinho’s influence in the dressing room, and despite disagreements over the length of his new contract, Manchester City are hopeful they will hire him later when he retires.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk player played 37 games for Premier League champions in all competitions last season and has won four top-flight titles, the FA Cup, and 6 EFL trophies while in Manchester.
