Manchester City set to offer bumper new deal to Phil Foden

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are all set to offer Phil Foden a massive new deal to ensure he continues at the club.

According to a report from The Sun, Manchester City are all set to make Phil Foden one of the highest-paid players at the club. They have decided to reward him with a new deal following his exceptional performances in the 2023/24 season and ward off interest from Real Madrid.

Foden has had an exceptional rise at City. He has been a part of their first team since the summer of 2017 and has already won six Premier League titles despite only being 24. Last season, he was one of the standout performers for them as the club made it four league titles in a row.

Bumper new deal to secure Foden’s future

He found the back of the net on 27 occasions and even bagged 12 assists in his 53 outings. On the back of his consistent performances, City have decided to reward him with a new deal. While he has three years left on his current contract where he earns around £200,000 with bonuses, they are ready to make him the highest-paid British player ever.

The Manchester-based club are all set to offer him a deal worth around £375,000 a week which will take him at par with two of their highest earners in Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne. While they are not under pressure in any way, City just want to ensure their academy product is happy and they have his future secured amidst interest from Real Madrid.

While the Spanish giants already have a star-studded squad, they are always on the lookout for options to further bolster it. Foden could be an exceptional signing for them given the kind of players they already have. Madrid have been linked with the 24-year-old but they will find it very hard to sign him with City having no intentions of negotiating his departure.

The new deal at City is expected to run until he is 30 which surely seems to be a way to ward off any interest in their star. The Manchester-based club are all set to begin contract renewal talks once he returns from the Euro and it will be interesting to see how things progress.
