Porto midfielder Fernando assures Man City he wants move

Manchester City have received a commitment from Porto midfielder Fernando for next season. The Independent says City have reached an informal agreement to sign the Porto midfielder Fernando in June. However, it won't be for a Bosman, with Porto expected to secure Fernando to new terms before selling him to City in a complicated transfer.

The new contract Porto have spent two years trying to tie Fernando - which remained unsigned because of the prospective City move - is likely to be concluded now, though the Portuguese club may now be unwilling to buy out the 26-year-old's third party ownership.

Doing so would make the transfer of the player more smooth this summer.
