‘Make him earn a new deal first’ – Some Fans reacts as Man City plans to offer £99m-rated star a new contract

Must read

Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a report that claims the club is set to offer England forward Raheem Sterling a new contract.

City have made new contracts for Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne their top priority after Guardiola penned an agreement that will keep him at the Etihad until 2023. 

The Sky Blues pair who have been two of Europe’s best attacking players since their arrivals in 2015, are currently tied to the club until 2023 at the Etihad.

According to Fabrizio Romano on the latest edition of the ‘Here We Go’ podcast as relayed by Sport Illustrated, City ‘plan’ to offer Raheem Sterling a new contract in 2021. However, Romano does reiterate that they are yet to start talks but the intention from the club is to offer a new deal.

Sterling’s current £300,000-a-week still has more than two years to run but City believe there is still much more to come from the forward as his market value rises.

Valued at £99m via Transfermarkt, the 26 year old forward has developed into a world class player during Guardiola’s time in charge. His success in front of goal over the previous four seasons under the Spaniard cannot be questioned. 

Having scored 10 goals in the manager’s first season, Sterling has since returned 23, 25 and 31 goals, winning two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and three League Cups.

His importance to City is underlined by the fact he has been involved in every one of their matches so far this season. The club may require greater persuasion with the former Liverpool man having expressed a desire to play abroad at some point during his career.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Chief, some City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions, with some questioning Sterling’s ability to contribute sufficiently to the attacking line due to the Surprise shortage on firepower in front of goal this season.
