The Man City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are enjoying what has been a fantastic campaign so far…
Defeat at Tottenham aside, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have been near-unstoppable so far this season.
With quality up and down the pitch, everyone in the Football Transfer Tavern has watched on in awe as the Sky Blues begin their quest to regain the Premier League title.
Whilst players like De Bruyne and Aguero often get the credit; there has been one near-consistent piece in the Man City jigsaw that our landlord feels has become crucial for Guardiola.
Often under-appreciated and unloved, Fernandinho does all the hard work in the Manchester City midfield – and it would appear that Pep Guardiola is set to reward him for that.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester City are keen to conclude a deal for a new contract with the Brazilian ace, with Fernandinho reportedly ready to put pen-to-paper on a new 2-year deal.
After appearing less consistently over the last year or 2, Fernandinho has regained his first team spot under Guardiola; and he has become quite the lynchpin in the heart of the Man City midfield.
This has delighted the Man City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern. Whilst Fernandinho is under-appreciated, they all recognise how important he has become to Pep Guardiola this year.
Having joined the club in the twilight of his career, many of the punters in the Tavern expected Fernandinho to flop at Manchester City – but he has proven to have become a crucial part of their success in recent years.
Offering aggressive midfield play and directness – no midfield is complete without a player of his ilk.
