Manchester City signing Fernando hopes to establish himself as one of the club's greats - and would love to play alongside Yaya Toure
Man City live updates
Roma coach Rudi Garcia is hoping to retain the core of his squad for next season.
The Giallorossi enjoyed a fantastic campaign and finished runners-up in Serie A but several of their players have drawn the attention of foreign clubs.
Mehdi Benatia is a reported target of Manchester City while midfielder Kevin Strootman has been strongly linked with Manchester United.
"This group is fantastic," Garcia said to Roma Channel. "We hope to keep almost all of them and improve the team.
"We have already started to build for the future."
Roma extended the contract of Bosnian playmaker MIralem Pjanic until June 2018 earlier this month, much to Garcia's delight.
"Then we need to bring in players with experience.
"In some positions where we are a little short in terms of quantity, we need to weigh up our options."
My agent was trying to make a point here on my behalf, joke aside.It seems important for me to make a statement..i am going to do so.
Everything dimitry said is true . He speaks for me . I will give an interview after world cup to explain
Jokes aside. Please do not take words that do not come out of MY mouth seriously. Judge my commitment to @MCFC by my performances.
Thanks for all the birthday messages today. Card from City just arrived... Must have got lost in the post. Haha
After the shocking news that Yaya Toure was upset at not receiving suitable birthday treatment from Man City's owners, here is a chance to see the squad sing to him on his special day. Skip to 2m47s should you wish to watch the song, for whatever reason.
