With his confirmation that he will leave Pep Guardiola's Manchester City at the end of the season, Brazilian international and Manchester City star midfielder, Fernadihno, appears to be finally set for an impending exit from Europe's top league after nine fruitful years in the English Premier League.
Speaking at today's press conference ahead of the Cityzens' second leg UEFA Champions League match against La Liga side Atletico Madrid, the 36-year-old reiterated that he intends to continue his professional career in his native country after his time with the club, with a decision having already been made with his wife and children.
"I'd like to participate. I am certain that I will return to Brazil. The most essential thing for me is what I've determined with my family is the most important thing for me "The Brazilian, who is without a doubt one of the best defensive midfielders in the world of football, expressed himself in this way.
The Blue half of Manchester, meanwhile, is reported to be actively seeking a prospective replacement, with West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice and Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham both believed to be on their shortlist of potential candidates.
