Brazilian midfielder Fernando has parted ways with Manchester City to secure a move to Galatasaray, the Premier League club has confirmed.

Fernando, who left Porto to make a switch to Manchester for £12m back in 2014, has now joined the Turkish giants in a €5.25m deal, which could further rise by €900,000 in bonuses.

The 30-year-old made 101 appearances for the Sky Blues during his 3-year stint in England, but only managed to start 5 Premier League games last season under new boss Pep Guardiola.

He was then left out of City’s recent pre-season tour to the United States, before he finally secured a move away from the Etihad outfit.



Upon the completion of his transfer, the midfielder told City’s official website: “It’s been a pleasure to play for Manchester City.

“The Club has looked after me incredibly well throughout my time here and I have enjoyed the challenge of playing for a top team in probably the world’s toughest league. The League Cup success of 2016 was a highlight for me and something I will never forget.”

City’s Director of Football, Txiki Begiristain, added: “Fernando has been an excellent servant for City. He is a dedicated professional and a player who has made a significant contribution throughout his time here. I am sure he will continue to prove his quality for years to come.”
