Manchester City reportedly take a tough stance on Ederson’s future

Manchester City will not contemplate selling Ederson unless he requests a transfer this summer it has been reported. City’s tough stance over Ederson’s future appears to be the right approach for the champions to take in regards to their number one keeper. The future of the Brazilian is becoming one of the biggest stories to watch for this summer given his importance to Pep Guardiola’s side.

Rob Dawson has reported for ESPN that Ederson will have to request a transfer for Manchester City to contemplate selling their number-one keeper. Furthermore, Dawson reports that the Brazilian keeper is attracting interest from the Saudi Pro League. Dawson mentions Al Ittihad as one Saudi Pro League interested in signing City’s number one keeper. Lastly, Dawson also reports that Manchester City are considering offering Ederson an improved contract if he turns down Saudi Pro League interest to remain at the club.

Given Ederson’s importance to Manchester City, the champions are right to take a tough stance over his potential exit.

Manchester City are well within their rights to take a tough stance over Ederson’s future at the club. He is one of Manchester City’s most important players given how good he is as a keeper and how good he is possession as a goalkeeper. Ederson is one of the premier goalkeepers in world football and replacing the Brazilian international would be no easy task. He also had a superb 23/24 season and was integral to City’s success across the season.

But if Ederson was to request a transfer that would change the equation. Manchester City are known to not keep players at the club who wish to leave. That appears to be the only scenario that could see City sell the Brazilian. Ederson’s future appears to be in his hands going forward. It will be fascinating to see if he puts in a transfer request this summer.

Manchester City’s tough stance over Ederson’s future appears to be a warranted position from the club. Ederson is crucial member of Pep Guardiola’s squad. The hope will be that he decides to stay at the club and potentially sign a new contract. That would appear to be the ideal scenario for Manchester City given Ederson’s importance and his standing in the game.
