Manchester City Agree £34 Million Deal for Fernandinho, Says Report

Manchester City have agreed a £34 million deal for Fernandinho, the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder, says a report.

According to reports, The Mirror is quoting a £22 million transfer fee, while Sky Sports is reporting that the transfer deal is believed to be £34 million.

The 28-year-old arrived at a Manchester hospital earlier today for his medical, and was at Etihad Stadium this afternoon to sign the paperwork to finalize what is rumored to be a £34 million transfer, which will be Manuel Pellegrini‘s second signing of the summer before he’s even joined the club. Jesus Navas is the other signing.

Fernandinho recently helped Shahktar Donetsk win the Ukrainian Premier League title, and played a part in the team reaching the Round of 16 in the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League before being knocked out by eventual runners-up Borussia Dortmund.

Fernandinho is a box-to-box midfielder who has earned several caps for his country, Brazil.

How do you think Fernandinho will adapt to playing in the Premier League?

    here we go again. man city spending huge money on players that won’t make a difference to the team. i saw him play against chelsea in last season’s champions league and from what i saw, he’s a very limited player who can’t change a game like wilshere or mata can

    Madness….City are building nothing more than a trinket, a rich mans plaything that builds no loyalty from anyone of it’s monthly millionaire players.

    Don’t know alot about him but seems high when Modric and Fabregras went for less.

    34m sterling seems a wildly high fee for a player of his quality.

    I guess that means no more Gareth Barry.
    Or hopefully they keep him and we never see Javi Garcia.
