​Fernandinho stalls on Man City extension talks

Fernandinho is taking his time when it comes to agreeing a new contract with Manchester City.

The 34-year-old has nine months left on his existing contract, but he is not in a rush to renew.

He is a mainstay in Pep Guardiola's team, but The Sun reports that he wants to see how the season progresses before committing.

The report indicates that both parties are comfortable with the circumstances, as the mutual respect between them means negotiations would be quick.

Fernandinho has competition for his place this season with the arrival of Rodri from Atletico Madrid.
