The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for the club to make a few transfer announcements over the coming weeks. It has been a quiet January so far for the Citizens, though that was not unexpected.
Pep Guardiola’s men have been near perfect so far this season, and in truth, it’s tough to see a single position that needs improvement within the Spaniard’s squad.
The priority for the club, then, is likely to ensure that the squad remains together. They’re on a roll at the moment, and a major departure of any kind could be enough to cause problems at the Etihad.
A recent announcement over on the official Man City website, then, is just what the Citizens have been waiting for. Man City have confirmed that midfielder Fernandinho has signed a new deal at the Etihad through to 2020.
It’s no less than the Brazilian deserves, having really impressed this season. He has always been key since moving to the club, but he has been at the centre of everything through the middle of the park under Pep Guardiola, providing a defensive and powerful option for an otherwise technical squad.
Unsurprisingly, the Citizens over on Twitter have been celebrating this news, with supporters touting it as ‘massive’.
They’re absolutely delighted. Take a look at a few responses below…
Well deserved been outstanding this season.

Feels like Christmas. He’s the one that makes everything work on the pitch and off it he’s the perfect example of a footballer & family man. He’s done what he can to help others settle in and nobody seems to have a bad word to say about him.
