Ederson agrees personal terms with Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr



| Last Updated:


Manchester City’s mainstay first-team goalkeeper Ederson has now reportedly agreed personal terms with Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr.

The transformational impact of the former SL Benfica shot-stopper may finally be coming to an end in the Premier League this summer, with the goalkeeper understood to be eyeing fresh opportunities away from the Etihad Stadium.

First conversations about a potential exit for Ederson emerged towards the end of last season, with the Saudi Pro League immediately emerging as a serious option for the player as they go in search of more big names to attract eyes towards their ambitious league.

Manchester City have since intensified and finalised contractual negotiations with back-up choice goalkeeper Stefan Ortega Moreno, who extended his deal at the Etihad by a further year, taking him through to the summer of 2026.

With talk of a possible exit for Ederson now hotting up deeper into the summer transfer window, we could soon find out whether Ortega now has a place as Manchester City’s first-choice between the sticks, especially in light of the latest emerging reports.

According to the information of journalist Gianluigi Longari, Saudi Pro League giants Al-Nassr have now reached an agreement on personal terms with Manchester City and Brazil number one Ederson.

It is further explained that negotiations will now open with the Premier League champions in order to finalise an agreement, however there is no mention of how much Etihad bosses may look to secure for the 30-year-old.

Should Al-Nassr and Manchester City come to an agreement over how much Ederson would move to the Middle-East for, it remains to be seen what strategy the Premier League giants employ when it comes to a new signing of their own in the goalkeeping ranks.

Following on from a string of impressive performances across the course of the last campaign, there remains a possibility that Manchester City coaching staff could promote Stefan Ortega Moreno into the first-choice goalkeeping slot.

However, should there be any doubts, City will likely be more than willing to invest a hefty amount of cash into a new first-choice option, with a number of names already having been tenuously linked with interest from the Etihad Stadium.

AC Milan and France international Mike Maignan has already been reported as a potential candidate to directly replace Ederson, while the monitoring of FC Porto and Portugal’s Diogo Costa will no doubt have intensified following his recent European Championship heroics.
