Shakhtar Donestsk midfielder Fernandinho has called for the club to lower their asking price for him so that he can join Manchester City this summer, according to Sky Sports.

The highly rated 28-year-old has emerged as a target for the former champions but wants his current club to lower the buy out clause in his contract to allow him to link up with the Premier League side.

Upon joining the Ukrainian side in 2005 a £40.5 million buy out clause was installed in his contract and it’s thought to be the major stumbling block in City’s interest.

The Brazilian has recently rejected a new deal with the club and is angry because he claims his bosses have broken promises regarding his future.

“The day I signed, the club’s director guaranteed me that was normal with his players, and that in a transfer, we could negotiate and reach an agreement on the price,” he said.

“I trusted them, and I didn’t think about the consequences it would bring me in the future.”

“My dream is being threatened because of the high valuation.”

He was a target for City in January but a move failed to materialise and now he is hoping to link up with the newly manager-less side this summer.
