Official: Ederson Signs New Five-Year Contract At Man City

Goalkeeper Ederson has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City this morning, the club have confirmed.

The Brazilian made the move to the Etihad Stadium from Benfica in the summer of 2017 for a fee of around €40 million. Three golden glove awards later, Ederson has transformed himself into one of the finest 'keepers in Europe.

Earlier this week, Paul Hirst and Pol Ballús of The Times broke the news he has agreed on a new contract at the Etihad Stadium, after discussions were held between the club and the goalkeeper's agent Jorge Mendes last week.

The new deal, which runs until 2027, prolongs his stay in Manchester for nine years since his arrival.

Still a phenomenal shot-stopper, the 28-year-old has made the number one shirt his own and has never looked in any danger of losing it.

In terms of team accolades, Ederson has been a crucial part of a squad that has captured three Premier League titles, one FA Cup, four Carabao Cup's and has reached the club's first-ever Champions League final.
