Ederson Santana de Moraes (born 17 August 1993), known simply as Ederson (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈɛdɛɾsõ]), is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Premier League club Manchester City and the Brazilian national team.

He started his career at São Paulo in 2008, before joining Portuguese side Benfica, one year later, where he spent two seasons as junior. In 2012, he transferred from Ribeirão to Rio Ave. He rejoined Benfica in 2015 and was assigned to the reserves before debuting for the first team, with whom he would win four major titles in two seasons. After the end of the 2016–17 season, he joined English club Manchester City for £35 million, becoming the most expensive goalkeeper of all-time in terms of the nominal value of pound sterling at the time of his transfer. He went on to win the Premier League and EFL Cup in his first season in England.

Ederson made his senior debut for Brazil in 2017 after previously being capped at under-23 level. He was chosen in Brazil's squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup as a back-up to Alisson.
