- Manchester City have secured the services of their goalkeeper Ederson Moraes until the summer of 2026
- The Brazilian star became the fifth player to pen a new deal after De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Stones, and Ruben Dias
- Since he joined City from Benfica in 2017, the 28-year-old has won 10 major trophies including three Premier Leagues
Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson Moraes becomes the latest Manchester City star to extend his stay at the club after signing a new five-year deal.
The Etihad Stadium outfit confirmed the three-time Premier League champion has committed his future to them until the summer of 2026.
Moraes initially joined the Citizens from Benfica in 2017 and this new move will now prolong his reign with the Citizens to nine years.
Information on the club's official website reveals that he is the fifth senior player after stars like Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, John Stones, and Ruben Dias to sign new deals.
The 28-year-old has established himself as a key figure in Pep Guardiola’s side since he was signed from Benfica in 2017.
He has kept 94 clean sheets in 195 appearances and winning every domestic honour available, as well as two Premier League Golden Gloves.
While reacting to his new contract, City’s No.31 believes the club is the perfect place to achieve his ambitions. He told mancity.com.
What Ederson Moraes said
“This was an easy decision for me. There is nowhere else I’d want to be.
“To be part of one of the best squads in world football and to compete for trophies year in year out is what every footballer wants, and that is the opportunity you’re given at City."
Ederson has conceded just twice this campaign - against Leicester City in the Community Shield and in their Premier League opener vs Tottenham Hotspur.
Top 10 highest spending club in the last decade
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City have been named as the No.1 club with the most international transfer and highest spenders between the year 2011 and 2020, SPORTbible reports.
In the previous decade, the Citizens who were earlier chasing a top-four finish became five-time Premier League winners and major Champions League contenders, having reached their first final in May.
Although recent successes of the club could be attributed to Pep Guardiola’s brilliant management style, there is no doubt that Manchester City have spent big to turn around their fortunes.
