Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is up for their battle with Manchester United next season.

The 28-year-old spent eight years playing in Ukraine and is keen to try his luck in England — with the derbies against Manchester United particularly catching his eye.

He said: “Each team has a different playing style. But I believe the larger clubs in the Premier League — like Manchester United — will be beyond any doubt the hardest ones.

“That’s due to the quality of their players and their tactical organisation. But nowadays all teams are hard to beat.

“What I really want is to play as soon as possible for City.”
