Fernandinho is close to signing new terms with Manchester City.
The 34-year-old's current deal expires at the end of the season.
“When I renewed at the end of 2018, we put a clause that if I reached certain goals, my contract would be renewed automatically," he told ESPN Brasil.
“Conversations have already started, we talked about it last month.
"I am close to reaching those goals and renewing the contract, but we can only confirm it after signing."
