“This was an easy decision for me,” Ederson told the club’s website.

“There is nowhere else I’d want to be. We have achieved so much in the last four years and I am confident we can continue to bring more success in the coming seasons.

“We have an outstanding manager. Working with him has been one of the great experiences of my career.”

The 28-year-old has made nearly 200 appearances for the club as he starts his fifth season in Manchester.

He made his major tournament debut for Brazil this summer as the hosts finished second at the Copa America.

The 2020-21 season brought Ederson his second consecutive Golden Glove award after keeping more Premier League clean sheets than any other goalkeeper.

“Ederson is one of the best goalkeepers in the world,” said Txiki Bergiristain, Director of Football at Manchester City.
