Manchester City have been in fine form from the very start of the of the present season and are scoring goals at will against all their opponents so far. Their 5-0 and 6-0 wins against Liverpool and Watford were two of the most devastating displays of attacking football seen so far this season and are they will look to carry their sensational form into the next matches as well.
Though they have been a very strong side when it comes to attacking, Manchester City have been brilliant in the midfield as well, making it easier for their attackers to get a regular supply of balls into the attacking third and letting them score goals freely. A number of players like David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, and Fernandinho have been at their very best in the season so far and are expected to get even more productive as the season progresses.
One of the abovementioned players, the Brazilian midfielder Frenandinho has been one of the most important players for the side in the role of a defensive midfielder throughout his tenure at the Etihad Stadium, having arrived at the home of the Citizens in the year 2013.
The 32-year-old has been nothing less than a rock in the middle of the pitch for the former English champions in all these years and his loyalty to the club is on the verge of getting rewarded by Manchester City, who are willing to offer him a new contract.
The player has played most of the matches as a defensive midfielder but has also contributed in the backline as a right back in times of contingency.
His big frame has been one of the main factors for the success of the City defence, guarding the backline and helping to get rid of the opposition players by snatching the ball away from them with hard-hitting tackles. His ability to chip in with crucial goals at times has also added to his importance in the side over time.
The Brazilian enforcer has made 190 appearances for his side so far in all competitions, giving them a world of solidarity in the midfield. Thier new manager Pep Guardiola has been much fond of his abilities and is willing to tie him down at the Etihad for some more time to come. He is well aware of his importance in the side and will want him to accept the new offer and to see that the player ends his career at the club.
