For the past few weeks, Ederson's status at Manchester City has come under scrutiny. There have been rumors circulating that people loyal to the Brazilian were looking forward to his departure from the Etihad Stadium during the summer, ever since he helped the Manchester side become the first team that captured four Premier League titles in a row.

The Daily Mail even claimed that Al Ittihad, a Saudi Pro League team, had an eye in landing the City goalkeeper. But now some behind-the-scenes information about how City feels right now about Ederson along with his potential future has surfaced. 

A new report from the Athletic stated that, “Sources in Saudi Arabia had been expecting Ederson to move to the Middle East when consulted at the end of last season, but at the moment, sources at City, kept anonymous to protect relationships, do not seem especially alarmed about his situation.”

In 2017, City signed the 30-year-old from Liga Portugal side Benfica for a fee of £35 million. The goalie has since made 332 appearances in all competitions for Pep Guardiola's team. In those contests, Ederson has won numerous domestic and European medals, preserved 155 clean sheets, and been a major contributor to the team's victory. Ederson is unquestionably a vital member of the club, and we believe it would be devastating for them if he seemed to go this summer.

It appears that Manchester City has made their summertime acquisition. For a variety of reasons, City are frequently in a stronger position than most other elite teams to make better moves in the transfer market. Few football teams in the world can compare to the English powerhouse's level of success under Pep Guardiola's leadership. 

Thus, when a player receives a contract from the Etihad Stadium, many players' heads turn immediately. Manchester City has signed all the paperwork required to sign Savio, according to Fabrizio Romano. This is a significant development in the much-discussed deal over the past few months.
