Phil Foden to sign new six-year Man City deal with England star’s wages set to treble to £200,000-a-week
MANCHESTER CITY are poised to announce a new six-year deal for Phil Foden with the England international set for a bumper pay rise.
SunSport exclusively revealed on July 9 how the Citizens will treble his wages to £200,000-a-week.
It is understood that the Premier League champions have already agreed the new deal, with only an announcement needed.
Foden — a lifelong City fan — currently earns £65k-per-week and has established himself as a Three Lions regular over the past two seasons.
The 22-year-old continued to impress for Man City last season as he picked up his fourth top-flight title.
In 45 appearances for the Citizens in the 2021-22 campaign, he chipped in with 14 goals and 11 assists.
His consistent performances also earned him a second PFA Young Player of the Year award.
The England international is expected to play a more important role in Pep Guardiola’s squad next season following the departures of Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.
After seven years at the Etihad Stadium, Sterling left Man City last month to join Chelsea in a deal worth £47.5m.
Meanwhile, Jesus made a £45million move to Arsenal.

Both players were key to Guardiola’s attack, but the Spaniard will have no issue with Foden stepping in to fill the voids.
So far this summer, City have also lost Oleksandr Zinchenko, who joined Arsenal in a deal worth £32m, along with numerous young stars including CJ Egan-Riley, Romeo Lavia and Gavin Banuzu.
But, the club have introduced four new players in Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips, Julian Alvarez and Stefan Ortega.
