The Brazilian has been a key part of Pep Guardiola’s plans in the last couple of years and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Ederson has committed his long-term future to Manchester City, signing a five-year contract extension at the club until June 2026.

Ederson became the second-most expensive goalkeeper upon his arrival to Manchester City from Benfica on a €40 million transfer in the summer of 2017.

The 28-year-old no longer holds the aforementioned record but has repaid the club’s faith in him.

One of the best and most consistent shot-stoppers in all of Europe, the 28-year-old has twice won the Premier League Golden Glove. He also featured twice in PFA Premier League Team of the Year and once in UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season.

His efforts have now been rewarded, with Man City tying him down with a new and lucrative deal reportedly worth £100,000-a-week.

“This was an easy decision for me. There is nowhere else I’d want to be,” Ederson told the club’s official website about his renewal.

“To be part of one of the best squads in world football and to compete for trophies year in year out is what every footballer wants, and that is the opportunity you’re given at City.

“We have an outstanding manager. Working with him has been one of the great experiences of my career and I am a better player for it.

“We have achieved so much in the last four years, and I am confident we can continue to bring more success to the club in the coming seasons.”
