This was probably my last game for Benfica - Ederson hints at Man City move

Ederson has suggested he has played his last
match for Benfica, with the 23-year-old goalkeeper
having been strongly linked with a move to
Manchester City.
The stopper helped Benfica to complete a domestic
double by claiming the Taca de Portugal with a 2-1
win over Vitoria Guimaraes on Sunday to follow up
their Primeira Liga title.
But the Brazilian hinted he is on his way out of the
club, with City reportedly close to signing the
goalkeeper.
"I still don't know, but this was probably my last
game for Benfica," Ederson told Portuguese outlet
RTP after the cup final.
City are seeking a new goalkeeper after allowing
Willy Caballero to leave the Etihad Stadium at the
end of his contract, while Chile international
Claudio Bravo has struggled to impress after
signing from Barcelona.
Pep Guardiola has already brought Monaco forward
Bernardo Silva to City and Benfica are reported to
want a fee in excess of the £32.6million fee
Juventus paid to Parma for Gianluigi Buffon in
2001, which would make Ederson the world's most
expensive goalkeeper.
Coach Rui Vitoria is expecting Ederson to leave the
club, telling reporters: "If Ederson leaves, he leaves
with the gratitude of Benfica. He will always carry
Benfica's name everywhere."
