Manchester City have reportedly opened contract talks with Raheem Sterling

Sterling’s Man City stint

Since Raheem Sterling’s big-money move to Manchester City in 2015, the England international has gone on to cement himself as one of the top talents in the English top-flight.

In 208 appearances for the Premier League champions, Sterling has bagged himself 83 goals and provided 70 assists.

Sterling’s 2018/19 PL campaign was particularly impressive, with the 24-year-old scoring 17 and assisting 12 in 34 appearances, as City clinched their second successive league title.

The former Liverpool man has also hit the ground running this term, netting 14 and assisting five in 17 games across all competitions.

As well as excelling for City, Sterling is becoming one of England’s top stars.

In his last five Euro 2020 qualifier appearances with England, Sterling found the back of the net four times, and also provided seven assists.

Sterling set for new deal?

Sterling’s current contract with Man City doesn’t expire until 2023.

However, it seems as though the Manchester powerhouse are trying to tie one of their most prized assets down to a fresh deal.

According to the Mirror, the Sky Blues have opened talks with Raheem Sterling over a new contract.

The Mirror claim that Sterling’s current deal is worth up to £300,000-a-week:

City’s last contract for Sterling takes him up to 2023 and is worth up to £300,000-a-week but his form in the past year has made them want to ensure they tie him down for as long as possible.
