The Brazilian has emerged as a potential summer transfer target for City, but they are reportedly unwilling to match the fee currently being demanded for his services.

Upon signing for Shakhtar, a £40.5million release clause was inserted in Fernandinho's contract.

He claims to have been given assurances that a compromise could be reached if a top club came calling, but has been left disappointed by Shakhtar's reluctance to relax their stance.

Fresh from turning down the offer of a new contract in the Ukraine, the 28-year-old midfielder said: "The day I signed, the club's director guaranteed me that was normal with his players, and that in a transfer, we could negotiate and reach an agreement on the price.

"I trusted them, and I didn't think about the consequences it would bring me in the future.

"My dream is being threatened because of the high valuation."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
