Shakhtar midfielder issues a come and get me plea to Manchester City.
Manchester City target Fernandinho says he would welcome a move to the club from Shakhtar Donetsk, as he believes the exposure would boost his chances of a place in Brazil’s squad for the 2014 World Cup.
According to the Sun, the Brazilian midfielder is pleased to hear of City’s interest, and hopes for a chance to leave Ukraine for England this summer.
“I believe my chances of making the World Cup squad will improve if I join City.
“My exposure would be better, because Brazil is biased towards the Ukrainian league.
“What we do here is not recognised in my country. Playing in a division, at a club that is considered among the best in the world would help me get back in the Brazilian national team.
“There are a lot of people in England with good football knowledge. Those complement my skills, and motivate me to want to play in the Premier League.”
