Sterling’s new deal at City to make him highest paid English footballer

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has reportedly agreed on a five-year deal at Manchester City according to reports in England. The 23-year-old’s representatives have reached an agreement with the club, and the England winger is expected to sign the deal in the coming days.

Sterling had 18 months left on his current contract, and the new deal will ensure he is tied down at Manchester until 2023. Sterling who currently earns around £170,000 a week could see his wages rise remarkable and could make him the highest paid English footballer in the world right now.

Sterling who was instrumental in Manchester City’s record-breaking title triumph last season joined the Sky Blues from Liverpool in 2015 in a deal that was reported to be worth £49m. Since then the Englishman has scored 48 goals in 151 matches for the reigning Premier League champions.

Last season he found the back of the net on 23 occasions in all competitions as Pep Guardiola’s side cruised to the title with a record 100 points. Sterling already has four goals in 11 games this season as Manchester City sit unbeaten on top of English football’s top flight table.
