Manchester City Goalkeeper Ederson Has Extended His Contract Until 2026.

Ederson, the goalkeeper for Manchester City, has extended his contract until 2026.

The 28-year-old joined City from Benfica in 2017 and has helped the team win three Premier League titles.

He has kept 95 clean sheets in 194 appearances for City and has twice won the Golden Glove award for most clean sheets in a season.

Ederson told Manchester City’s official website: “This was a simple choice for me. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

“Every footballer dreams of becoming a member of one of the top squads in the world and competing for trophies year after year, and City provides that opportunity.

“We have a fantastic manager on our team. Working with him has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life, and it has made me a better player as a result.

“We’ve accomplished so much in the last four years, and I’m optimistic we’ll be able to continue to bring the club more success in the coming seasons.”

Ederson joins the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, John Stones, and Ruben Dias in having his contract extended this season.

Ederson has helped City win three Premier League crowns, four League Cups, and the FA Cup, but they have yet to win Europe’s premier prize, the Champions League trophy.

Last season, they came so close to winning the Champions League, but Ederson stated, “My major aim is to reach the Champions League final again, to be champions this time.”

“We had the pleasure of competing in our first Champions League final, which we tragically lost.

“It was a devastating blow for everyone, but I believe it was also a valuable learning experience for many players. I believe it also served as an educational experience for us now that we are older.

“I’m hoping to return to the Champions League final. Let’s work towards it and, as a result, winning the title, because it’s one of the major goals we have for this season – the Premier League, the Carabao Cup, and the FA Cup, all at the same time.

“We approach every event with the goal of winning, never with the goal of merely making it to the finals. It is to make it to the final and win.

“It will be easier for us to reach it if we have this thought, and the entire group has this thought.”

This year’s campaign pitted City against PSG, RB Leipzig, and Club Brugge in Group A.

On September 15, they face Leipzig at home to begin their European campaign.
