Fernando Man City move to be completed

Manchester City have finally agreed a fee with Porto to enable midfielder Fernando Reges to move to the Premier League, according to The Daily Star.


The long-running transfer saga could finally come to an end this week after the Portuguese giants made an announcement confirming that a price had been agreed with the Manchester club.

They issued a statement to the Lisbon stock exchange which read: "FC Porto hereby informs the market that it has reached an agreement with Manchester City for the permanent transfer of professional footballer Fernando Reges for 15million euros [£12 million]."

Fernando, 26, was born in Alto Paraíso, Brazil, and has spent almost his entire professional career to date with Porto after joining them from Brazilian minnows Vila Nova in 2007. He was denied the opportunity of representing his adopted country internationally earlier this year after FIFA ruled him ineligible, having already represented Brazil at under-20s level before attaining Portuguese citizenship.

The tough-tackling defensive midfielder played 36 times in all competitions last season, picking up 12 yellow and two red cards, including being dismissed in the Europa League quarter finals as Porto crashed out to eventual winners Sevilla.

City are also rumoured to be interested in signing Fernando’s former Porto team mate, the French international defender Eliaquim Mangala, however neither club has confirmed whether or not a move is on the cards.
