It's no mystery that Manchester City is seriously considering a replacement for Fernandinho whose growing age has raised concerns among the City faithful. The Brazillian's unprecedented importance has raised alarm bells within the club who are now preparing life after Fernandinho. 

In recent times, several players got linked as a back up for the midfielder, but none of the deals seem to materialize, with Schalke's Sebastian Rudy the latest to appear on the scene. According to the Sun, Guardiola is an admirer of the German International and knows him well from his time in the Bundesliga. 

Rudy has struggled this season at Schalke, and the club has offered him on loan if there is a fee involved. He would undoubtedly be an ideal back up for Fernandinho as the title race gets tighter every week.

A sports enthusiast and an avid follower of football. Since childhood I was encouraged to play cricket and in no time it became a hobby. Gradually I found interest in other sports also. Football is in my blood and I love the electrifying ambiance that surrounds it. I often watch the pre and post match analysis of a match and try to learn how to analyze a football game. The thing that intrigues me the most is that there are so many things happening behind the scenes that are oblivious to our naked eyes. The technological advancements that has been made are phenomenal. I like analyzing a game from a statistical point of view. Being a data guy myself , I am firm believer of providing insights through facts and data. Though a game is always unpredictable , analyzing it from different dimensions can provide some very interesting conclusions.
