Ederson has been rewarded for a brilliant debut season at Manchester City with a two-year extension to his contract at the Etihad Stadium.
The Brazilian was part of a summer spending spree by Pep Guardiola’s team, joining City from Benfica in a deal worth £35 million to make him the second-most expensive goalkeeper of all time.
He settled instantly into the squad and kept 17 clean sheets across the course of the Premier League season as his team recorded the best campaign in the league’s history.
And, in a demonstration of how much Ederson means to the club, his previous six-year deal has been extended until 2025.
“Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has signed a two-year contract extension that will take his current deal up to 2025,” a City statement confirmed on Sunday.
“Widely expected to join up with the Brazilian national squad for this summer’s World Cup, Ederson is considered one of the great young goalkeepers in world football.
“The 24-year-old, who signed from Benfica in the summer of 2017, has established himself as first-choice goalkeeper this season and has featured in all but two matches of the club’s Premier League title-winning campaign. Having joined on an initial six-year deal last summer, the player has now extended his stay by a further two years.”
Both Ederson and club director of football Txiki Begiristain expressed their delight at sealing a new deal.
“I’m delighted to sign my new contract. It means that the club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans,” the goalkeeper signalled.
“I want to win everything we can! All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City’s shirt!”
Begiristain, meanwhile, added: “Ederson has shown in his first season at the club that he has all the attributes needed to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
“He has outstanding quality and his ability with the ball sets him apart from his competitors. We are really looking forward to seeing him develop at City over the coming years.”
