Manchester City youngster Phil Foden is set to receive a bumper pay rise when he puts pen to paper to on a new contract extension.
According to a report by The Mirror, Foden signed a six-year contract in 2018 worth £25,000-a-week, but it is believed his new deal could see him treble that to £75,000-a-week.
He will also be offered significant clauses, such as a £9,000 win bonus, and City chiefs are confident that the midfielder will agree to the terms.
Though he struggled for regular playing time before the start of this season, Phil Foden has long been seen at Man City as the natural successor to club legend David Silva.
With Silva’s departure after 10 trophy laden years at the club, Foden has slotted seamlessly at one of the midfield positions.
His impact was clearly seen against West Ham in the Premier League. Coming on at half time, Foden scored City’s equalizer, gave the team a new sense of purpose and urgency.
Nicknamed the “Stockport Iniesta”, Phil Foden is the future of Manchester City and a new contract just 2 years after his previous deal shows the club’s commitment to keep him at Man City for a long time.
