Fernando: ‘It’s Not Worth Staying at Manchester City and Not Being Used’
Manchester City midfielder Fernando has made it clear that he sees his future away from the club and he is waiting on a move materialise, with Turkish club Galatasaray closely linked in recent weeks.
A move has yet to come to fruition, but Fernando, who has become a bit part player under Pep Guardiola, insists that he is looking to leave, telling Diario de Noticias, “My first objective is to go out and play. It’s not worth staying at Manchester City and not being used.
“I want to play and I have already told the club. Let’s wait, the club is waiting for a good offer.” Asked about a return to Porto, the Brazilian said, “I’ll never close the doors to FC Porto. It’s the club of my heart, a great club, but you never know.
“If you ask me if someone from FC Porto contacted me, there has been nothing. But you never know.” Fernando also volunteered the price that Manchester City have put on his head to seal a move away.
“Between 7 and 8 million euros. The club that offered money was Galatasaray. City want to sell me, but what’s good for the club might not be good for me. It’s no use for the deal to only work for one party, hence the difficulty in resolving this. By August 31st, anything can happen.”
