Manchester City wont go over a possible new contract for Fernandinho until the seasons close, director Pep Guardiola has confirmed.
The Brazil midfielder, who has been deployed this season, sees his present deal perish in June 2020.
Guardiola says the club will assess those players out of contract with Claudio Bravos deals along with David Silva coming to a conclusion when the season is finished, but Silva affirmed in the summer he is leaving the Etihad.
There will be a requirement to regenerate. David has confirmed hes leaving. Fernandinho doesnt know, however, its ordinary if players reach this age and point in their own lifetimes, Guardiola explained. Of course we have to replace them [if they leave].
I believe in the end of the season we will decide all of the scenarios; the players completing contracts, the gamers to get contracts, what we must do, what we believe is the most appropriate for the club, for your organisation next year.
[Should they leave] we do not need to reconstruct too much. A team is not being rebuilt by three players. Thats bringing in seven players, when seven completed their contracts, such as we did at the season. Three players is just substituting some places.
Guardiola more ruled out City signing any new players at the coming January transfer window including a centre-back, last summer once they lost out to Manchester United on Harry Maguire.
I really dont need any gamers from January, the Spaniard said. We cannot do it in summer, we cant do it in January.
As soon as an amazing opportunity comes in January for the next five or four or six years, perhaps we can think about doing it. But that is not possible. The players we think could be interesting [clubs] are not going to sell them.
We couldnt sign a centre-back [in the summer]. We chose to accommodate Fernandinho inside this place and thats all. Sometimes although the club wishes to try to do the very best we cant. We have to adapt that weve got.
Vincent chose to visit Belgium. We have yet another alternative in different players and Im considering that. No [we dont miss him], the group is outstanding. Theyre incredible. They take themselves perfectly, have an unit.
Vincent was and will be an important player and individual for this club. However he made a decision to go to Belgium and we have other amazing players to attempt to perform the job they have to perform.
