According to a report from The Sun, as relayed by City Xtra, Raheem Sterling will have to wait before putting the finishing touches on a new £320,000-per-week contract at the Etihad Stadium after holding initial talks – prompting plenty of Manchester City fans to discuss this development on Twitter.
Sterling, who was Man City’s top scorer in all competitions last season with 31 (Transfermarkt), hasn’t exactly shown that type of form over 2020/2021 despite still being their second highest goal-getter, bagging 13 by comparison so far this campaign (BBC).
Should Raheem Sterling be given a new £320,000-per-week deal?
Yes, 100%, totally deserved
Despite this drop-off, talks have been held over a bumper new deal which would take Sterling’s wages up to £320,000-per-week, but it appears that the club and Sterling have taken a back seat in discussions, according to The Sun.
Allegedly, negotiations are set to stall over this fresh contract, and Sterling will have to wait before putting pen to paper. Even though these talks have ceased for the time being, there is apparently no suggestion of a move away.
Flocking to this development, it’s safe to say that many City supporters have an opinion on the news, with there being no shortage of reactions on social media.
