However, Fernando did add that a move away from the Etihad Stadium is not necessarily in his own best interests

According to Portuguese outlet Diario de Noticias, former Porto man Fernando said: “I have several loan options but City want to sell.

“That’s why it’s difficult because I only have a year left on my contract.

“The club that has offered money for me is Galatasaray, but what is good for City may not be good for me.”

Fernando joined Man City back in 2014 and quickly became an integral part of the Etihad midfield – making 49 appearances in the Premier League in his first two seasons.

However, last year, he took on more of a bit-part role under Pep Guardiola, even filling in at right-back for many of his minutes on the pitch.

His time in Manchester may well be coming to an end – with only one League Cup trophy to celebrate during his three seasons.

Prior to his move to England, Fernando spent six years at Porto, making 228 appearances, scoring five times.

The Brazilian won the Primeira Liga four times during his days at the club, as well as the Europa League and Super Cup titles.
