Couto signed for City in July and said on Thursday: ‘I stayed there for a week. I was able to have a coffee with the Brazilians at the club.

‘I also had a dinner with Fernandinho, who invited me. Fernandinho, to tell you the truth, is a friend of mine, we always exchange messages on WhatsApp.’ 

The 18-year-old then suggested that Fernandinho is calling time on his career at City.

‘I will not be lucky enough to play with him, he will leave this year,’ Couto added.
