Viet Nam News - - SPORT -

LONDON — Manch­ester City winger Ra­heem Ster­ling has ver­bally agreed a new five-year con­tract with the Pre­mier League cham­pi­ons, ac­cord­ing to reports on Thurs­day.

Ster­ling has de­vel­oped into one of Eng­land’s most ex­cit­ing play­ers since join­ing City from Liver­pool in 2015 and the new deal is be­lieved to have al­most dou­bled his wages.

The 23-year-old, whose ex­ist­ing terms were set to ex­pire in 2020, will re­port­edly earn around £300,000 (US$389,000) per week once he of­fi­cially signs the im­proved con­tract, which would cur­rently make him the high­est paid English foot­baller.

Ster­ling played a key role in

City’s record-break­ing ti­tle tri­umph last term and this sea­son has net­ted four goals in eight Pre­mier League ap­pear­ances in all com­pe­ti­tions.

His fu­ture at the club has been a hot topic since the start of the sea­son.
