Foden set for new Man City contract
The 2020/21 season has seen Phil Foden truly cement himself on the world stage.
The 20-year-old has always possessed obvious talent, but it was not until the current campaign that Pep Guardiola began to hand Foden consistent starts on the biggest stage.
Now, though, the versatile midfielder has established himself as an absolutely essential cog in Guardiola’s attack, having, of late, taken Raheem Sterling’s spot in the Sky Blues’ XI.
So far, Foden has notched 14 goals and 10 assists in all competitions this term, whilst having put in some starring displays well beyond his years against teams such as Borussia Dortmund and PSG.
And now, reports stemming from England suggest that Foden could be in line for a new Manchester City contract.
The youngster is currently tied down at the Etihad until 2024.
However, a report from the Daily Mail claims that Foden is thought to be on the verge of signing a new contract, to take him into the six-figures-a-week bracket.
Few other details are provided, but, given his recent form, it is easy to see why the Manchester powerhouse are keen to agree new terms with Foden.
Owen praises Foden
Elsewhere, Michael Owen has been singing the praises of both Foden and Chelsea’s Mason Mount.
The ex-Liverpool hitman is predicting an exciting summer for the young pair with England.
Perhaps most interestingly, though, Owen voiced his opinion that Foden, in particular, could soon reach the level of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland:
“So exciting for the summer with England. I think Mason Mount and Phil Foden could be two of the best players in the world in the future, I think they’re that good.
“It’s so exciting to watch their progress. I honestly think they’re going to get there (up there with Mbappe and Haaland), certainly Foden.”
