Manchester City celebrated their record breaking title-winning season by confirming that goalkeeper Ederson has signed a new contract extension.
After a season in which the popular Brazilian established himself as the club’s first choice goalkeeper the 24-year-old has extended his Manchester City stay for a further two years from 2023 to 2025.
The former Benfica custodian originally signed for the club in the summer of 2017 on a six year deal for a fee believed to be £35m and has featured in all but two matches of City’s Premier League title-winning season.
He is known for his long kicking accuracy and ability to play as a sweeper-keeper as part of the build-up and quickly became a fan favourite for his saves and bravery in quickly coming off his line.
Recognised as one of the world’s best young goalkeepers, he is widely expected to join up with Brazil’s squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Ederson was happy with the new deal, saying: “I’m delighted to sign my new contract.
“It means that the Club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans.
“I want to win everything we can! All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City’s shirt!
Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City director of football, added: “Ederson has shown in his first season at the Club that he has all the attributes needed to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
“He has outstanding quality and his ability with the ball sets him apart from his competitors. We are really looking forward to seeing him develop at City over the coming years.”
