Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has said he will not renew his contract with the club and will leave the team in the summer on a free transfer.
“Perhaps after the 2018/19 season, when I had to change positions, I lost my place in the squad. It was hard to recover from this, especially considering the age. However, I decided that I should help the club.
Will I renew my contract? I don’t think. Why? I want to play. I will return to Brazil. I made this decision together with my family, which is the most important thing in my life, ”Fernandinho said at a press conference before the second leg of the Champions League 1/4 finals against Atlético.
Fernandinho has been with Manchester City since July 2013. In the 2021/22 season, the footballer scored 1 goal and gave 2 assists in 23 matches for the team. The current contract of the 36-year-old Brazilian is valid until the end of June 2022.
