Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a report that claims Raheem Sterling is setting up his own agency as he prepares to negotiate his own new contract just like team-mate Kevin De Bruyne.

City agreed a new contract with talisman De Bruyne this week making him the highest paid player in the Premier League, on a deal worth up to £430,000-a-week.

Having tied down De Bruyne, City are understood to be keen to agree renewed terms with Sterling, with ESPN on Friday claiming the England star is likely to expect similar terms to the Belgian’s contract in order to commit his future to City.

According to Daily Mail, Raheem Sterling, who has split from his long-term agent is setting up his own football agency, and will conduct his own Man City contract negotiations with legal advice, just like Kevin De Bruyne negotiated the deal himself, using Belgian lawyers Daan Buylaert and Sven Demeulemeester to finalise the paperwork.

Sterling’s current deal is worth £300,000-a-week if he triggers certain clauses and he will look for improved terms.

A new deal would have to see a significant rise in that number but it seems unlikely City will want to put him in the same pay bracket as the Belgian.

Sterling isn’t on de Bruyne’s level yet and has actually been left out from the starting eleven for recent big games. He has now made just one start in the last six games for the Blues after a dip in form.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, many Man City fans have have expressing their thoughts and opinions.
