Man City to triple Phil Foden’s wages with new contract offer

Manchester City are set to agree a contract extension with Phil Foden that will see the 20-year-old’s wages triple, according to sources close to Man City Central.

The Stockport-born star is Manchester City’s best ever academy graduate and despite his age, it’s clear that he will be one of the best players in the Premier League in a few years’ time.

Currently earning £25,000 per week, our sources suggest that a new offer from Man City will see his wages triple to £75,000 a week as a reward for his performances since Project Restart.

In 84 appearances for the Cityzens, Foden has 18 goals and 14 assists which were scored mostly as a teenager. There is no doubt that once he has more experience, he will be a starter for City.

His versatility has been crucial for Guardiola as he is able to play on either wing, down the middle or behind the striker, meaning his Spanish manager has several tactical options to consider when introducing him from the bench or as a starter.

While City are yet to make their offer, officials at the club are understood to be confident that Foden will accept the offer which will extend his terms to 2026 and triple his basic wage by 200%.

Foden, along with Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, has been involved in controversy this year after the two young footballers broke government rules over social distancing when they invited girls into their hotel room during their international commitments with the England national team.

The Man City star, however, has since put his head down and avoided drama since the incident which, predictably, the media blew out of proportion.
