City want new deals for duo

Having got Kevin de Bruyne so sign a contract extension, Manchester City are now ready to turn their attention to securing the long-term futures of England duo Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden.

The club has been pushing for extended deals for all three, and, having now made a breakthrough with the Belgian, are hoping that the others will fall into line.

Foden is regarded as the easier of the pair, and it is regarded that he is close to agreement. Even though he is already under contract until 2024 at the Etihad.

Sterling might be slightly more problematic, in part because he has recently split with his suggestion and there have been suggestions that City will defer his talks until the end of the season.

 The latest moves are a  clear indication of City’s long-term future planning and their desire to keep star players happy, whilst protecting their value by tying them down to long-term contracts.
