Benfica goalkeeper Ederson drops major hint he is joining Manchester City

Is Ederson Moraes on the verge of joining Manchester City? After months and months of speculation, we had news of gentleman’s agreement, then reports of the phone call from Guardiola that is known to seal deals.

Now we have the classic social media ‘like’ from the player that always gets fans excited. Not only does 23-year-old Ederson, currently on international duty with Brazil, follow City on Instagram (he has done for a while), but he is liking photos without a care in the world.

His most recent ‘like’ was interesting – City quoting İlkay Gündoğan talking about returning to action during the pre-season tour of the USA.

Could Ederson be a City player by then and join İlkay in matches against Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham? The evidence is mounting up that the goalkeeper is on his way to the Etihad. As always, until City announce it, or more likely, Benfica report to the Portuguese Stock Market that they have agreed to sell the player, it remains speculation.

But this should get fans quite excited!


Until the end of March, the City Store is marking down some iconic Retro Shirts to £20 (£18 for Cityzens).

Make sure you grab one!
