The Brazil international only moved to the north west last summer, however, the 28-year-old has already settled into life at the club.

“I settled very quickly in Manchester, but in the beginning I had to overcome many difficulties,” Fernandinho said.

“People were not looking at me favourably because other Brazilians at City had not done so well. Also, Ukrainian football is not rated very highly in Europe.

“But now I have shown that I deserve to be a regular for City. The World Cup is my big goal. I want to convince Luiz Felipe Scolari by continuing to play well here and by winning trophies with City.

“I am fine in Manchester, it is a very quiet city. City were not the only club interested in me last summer, but they were the only one who made an offer.

“Finish my career in Manchester? Yes, anything is possible. I am fine here, I have a four-year contract and I have no reason to think about anything else.

“I believe in this project and I believe that we will win important trophies.”
