Manchester City Set to Open Contract Talks With Ederson
Reaping the Rewards of Consistent Performances
Manchester City are looking to extend the contract of their Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson. The proposed new contract will see Ederson extend his stay at Manchester City until 2028. If he does sign the new contract extension, the Brazilian could stay at Etihad until the age of 34.
Ederson joined Manchester City in 2017 from Benfica. The goalkeeper had an instant impact on the Manchester City squad, helping Pep Guardiola win his first Premier League title. The Brazil international’s impressive debut season saw him get a new contract just a year after joining the Citizens.
Ederson has been an important piece for Pep Guardiola’s jigsaw. The Brazillian’s ability with feet and hands has been vital in helping Guardiola develop this dominating Manchester City team. In just four seasons since his move, Ederson has won three Premier League titles, four League Cups, two Community Shields and an FA Cup. He has made 191 appearances for the Citizens, winning the Premier League Golden Glove twice.
Manchester City Looking to Offer Contract Extension to Several Players
Manchester City have reportedly prioritised renegotiation of several of their important first team players. The Citizens are keen to tie up John Stones, who is in the final year of his contract. Ruben Dias, who arrived last season, is also likely to get a pay rise after an impressive debut season. Phil Foden is another name who will get another contract extension.
They are also looking to extend the contract of English winger Raheem Sterling, who has just two more seasons remaining in his contract. Riyad Mahrez is also reportedly getting an extension despite several rumours circulating about the Algerian’s future.
The situation of Gabriel Jesus, who is also in the last two years of his contract, is uncertain with Manchester City yet to take a decision on the Brazilian’s future.
