Fernandinho’s value couldn’t really skyrocket the way we would have wanted to see it
- 2005: Atlético Paranaense to Shakhtar Donetsk for £7.02 million
- 2013: Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester City for £36 million
Fernandinho's full name is Fernando Luiz Roza, and he is a Brazilian footballer who plays in both the midfielder and central-forward positions. Since 2011 he was captain for the Brazil national team and even scored two goals for them. He has a FIFA World Youth Championship (2003) under his belt and a Copa America title (2019). We are excited to review all the transfer news and rumours about Fernandinho's senior career and accomplishments.
Fernandinho Transfer Odds and Football Whispers
The professional footballer came up in the Brazilian football team Atlético Paranaense among friends and starred in seventy-two matches for them, of which he scored fourteen goals. Shakhtar Donetsk is a Ukrainian club that plays in the Ukrainian Premier League, and Fernandinho played a considerable role during his time with the team. They got him for a fee of £7.02 million until he was named the best Brazilian player to play for the team. Alongside his teammates, he won six Ukrainian Premier League titles, four Ukrainian Cups, two Ukrainian Super Cup titles, and one UEFA Cup title in the 2008/2009 season. He scored thirty-one goals for the team and made a total of one hundred and eighty-four appearances.
During the 2013 summer transfer window, Manchester City's first signed player that summer for £36 million. It was the second-most-expensive transfer Manchester City made, with only Robinho's transfer in 2008 leading the chart. He signed a four-year deal, and it was reported that he gave up around four-and-a-half million that the Ukrainian team still owed him to compete for the transfer to the Sky Blues. He chose the number twenty-five shirt because of his son. Since then, Fernandinho has played for Manchester City and appeared in two hundred and twenty-eight matches and scored eighteen goals, which is impressive for a central midfielder. During the 2016/2017 season, the team's manager Pep Guardiola praised him, which confirmed his significant role in the club, and later, he continued to be a vital asset to them. Alongside his teammates, Fernandinho has won:
- Three Premier League titles
- Five EFL Cups
- 2018 FA Community Shield
During the 2019/2020 season, Manchester City's manager signed other transfer targets and planned to keep Fernandinho as a back-up central defender, but things changed thanks to Laporte's injury. In January 2020, Fernandinho signed a one-year extension with Manchester City. Still, almost two years later, it was reported that Guardiola chose him to be the team's captain after the departure of David Silva. There haven't been any transfer rumours about the player leaving Man City anytime soon and no gossip about retirement just yet. The age issue has come up in the past, and we are sure that it could come up again, and because of it, a new transfer might occur to another team. We will monitor him to bring you all the latest news regarding possible future transfers and any information about his possible retirement in the future.
