This Wednesday, after the victory, the day before, of Manchester City against Dortmund in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (2-1), good news fell among the English. Kevin de Bruyne, still hallucinating against the BvB, has decided to extend the adventure with the Skyblues until 2025. He will also touch a real jackpot, which will make him the highest paid player in the Kingdom.
But the Citizens do not intend to stop there. In addition to the fact that they would like to recruit Lionel Messi, at the end of his contract at FC Barcelona, or Erling Haaland, the striker of the Ruhr club they faced in this midweek, the residents of the Etihad count well also continue to extend some key players of the team led by Spaniard Pep Guardiola.
Hope is in order for Sterling
Phil Foden, a real revelation this year, is also very close to agreeing with his club to renew his contract, tells us Eurosport this Thursday. Discussions are progressing well and the news could be formalized quickly. Among the English, we also hope that Raheem Sterling will also decide to extend the adventure, but the exchanges are not as easy as with the other two.
Talks between the two parties are suspended until the summer tells us The Telegraph. Under contract for two more years, the England international intends to recover his place before discussing, knowing that he has not started a Premier League meeting for a month. Additionally, Sterling has left his longtime agent and could represent himself. However, hope remains at the club. In addition, Txiki Begiristain, the sporting director of the Mancuniens, should get down to extending the contracts of John Stones and Fernandinho.
