In a recent report, The Athletic mentioned that Manchester City keeper Ederson is set to pen a three-year contract extension soon. It is understood that the Brazilian goalie will extend his Man City contract by three more years as the club has decided to reward him after his excellent form for them last season (via The Athletic).
Ederson’s Sensational Form In English Football Last Season
Ederson had another successful season at Manchester as he continued to excel as Pep Guardiola’s primary keeper. The South American sensation’s impressive contributions helped Man City secure the Premier League title in the previous campaign while he also bagged the golden glove award after keeping 19 clean sheets in the league.
The 27-year-old made 48 appearances for the Mancunian outfit last season, conceding 33 goals and securing 26 shutouts across all fronts. Ederson performed well to average 0.5 clearances and 4.4 long balls per game in Premier League football. He even distributed the ball with conviction after he completed 81.2% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
Ederson is currently playing at a very high level for Man City and has firmly established himself amongst the best goalkeepers in European football. Hence, Man City’s decision to extend their star keeper’s contract shouldn’t come as a surprise as he seems destined to win even more trophies with the club in the coming seasons.
Ederson Set To Pen A Three-Year Contract Extension: Good Move For Both Parties?
Ederson boasts outstanding reflexes that help him make a few world-class saves at the back. He is a solid handler of the ball and hardly commits any mistakes inside his penalty box. The Brazilian is also a superb sweeper-keeper as he can come out of his lines to clear the danger when required. Plus, he can pass the ball quite well from the back which has made him such a valuable member of Pep Guardiola’s first XI.
At 27, Ederson is enjoying the prime stage of his playing career at the moment, so he could still play an influential role for Man City over the next few seasons. The Brazilian custodian can benefit from getting his long-term future sorted so that he can solely concentrate on getting better on the pitch.
Guardiola would also be able to reap the rewards of having Ederson tied down to a longer contract if he is planning to establish a period of sustained success at the Etihad. Therefore, this recent development of the Brazilian contract extension could prove to be a good move for both the player and the Mancunian club before the start of the new season.
