Shakhtar star Fernandinho keeps Man Utd, Man City waiting

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernandinho has played down suggestions he is set for a big money move to the English Premier League.

The Brazilian who represented his country four times in 2012 and has again helped fire his Ukrainian club side into the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League is rumoured to have piqued the interest of both Manchester United and Manchester City.

"I have a contract until 2016 with Shakhtar and I see my future there because it is a club that opened the door for me to play in Europe," he said.

Though not wanting to rule out an eventual move he went on to say, "I can not say I'm never going to leave Shakhtar. If you get an offer and it's good for me and the club, I'll sit down and talk with the manager."
