Phil Foden’s Man City wages set to more than triple with bumper new contract

Phil Foden is set to be offered a new £100,000-a-week deal by Manchester City.

Etihad bosses are poised to open talks with Foden over a lucrative new contract to reflect his emergence as one of English football's brightest talents.

The 20-year-old has established himself in Pep Guardiola's side this season with a number of thrilling performances to help them challenge for a quadruple.

City chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak is keen to reward Foden's impressive form with a contract extension that will see his current £30,000-a-week wages more than triple.

The new deal will keep Foden at the Etihad until 2025 at least.

Foden has become one of the hottest properties in Europe.

But Al-Mubarak has no doubts about the rising sensation pledging his future to the club he has been at since his youth days.

With Foden likely to play a starring role for England at the Euros this summer, Etihad chiefs want to tie him down to a new deal before the tournament begins.

Foden scored the winning goals in both legs of City's Champions League quarter-final wins over Borussia Dortmund, to set up a semi-final showdown with Paris St Germain.

He has scored 13 goals this season to fill the void left by the departure of David Silva last summer and his form has also kept Raheem Sterling out of the starting XI in recent weeks.
