Phil Foden, a Manchester City midfielder, has been offered a new long-term contract at the Etihad, which includes a significant pay increase.
The England midfielder has been offered a six-year contract earning £150,000 per week as a reward for his outstanding debut season with both club and country, coming off the tail of Euro 2020.
The Premier League champions want to bring Foden, who earns £40,000 a week, in line with a slew of other City players who have signed long-term deals. In recent weeks, captain Kevin de Bruyne, Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson, and central defenders Ruben Dias and John Stones have agreed to new contracts.
Foden, 21, will join that group with a massive nearly quadruple-his-money deal after missing the start of the new season due to a foot injury sustained at the Euros. Reserve goalkeeper Zack Steffen is another Etihad player who is likely to pledge his future soon.
