Sterling signs three-year contract extension

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has signed a three-year contract extension with the Premier League champions committing his future to the club until 2023. The Englishman who has been in fine form has been rewarded with a massive £300,000 a week contract.

The 23-year-old previous deal at the Etihad Stadium would expire at the end of next season, but Pep Guardiola was keen to make sure his one of his key players was tied down to the club. The new contract has made Raheem Sterling one of the best-paid English players in the Premier League.

“I’m delighted to sign. My development here has been incredible, I felt from the minute I got here it was the right choice for me. It’s paid off and I’m really grateful” the 23-year-old who joined from Liverpool in a £49m deal in 2015 said.

Sterling has scored 23 goals last season and was one of City’s most instrumental players in their League Cup and Premier League title triumph. Sterling has continued from where he had left last season and has already found the back of the net 7 times this campaign.

Despite being just 23, Raheem Sterling has already been capped by England 46 times. He even scored a brace against Spain last month, which came as a huge relief for the youngster, considering it was his first international goals for three years.
