According to a report by Daily Mail journalist Ian Ladyman, via City Xtra, Manchester City sensation Phil Foden is thought to be on the verge of signing a new contract to take him into the six-figures-a-week wage bracket – prompting many Sky Blues to erupt in excitement.
The midfielder has been a revelation under manager Pep Guardiola this season after being eased into the side gently since his full City debut way back in 2017.
Scoring 14 goals and assisting his teammates 10 times in all competitions over 2020/2021 (Transfermarkt), Foden has also contributed majorly in huge games – most recently assisting Riyad Mahrez for his second goal against Paris-Saint Germain in the Champions League semi-final second leg.
This new agreement will apparently elevate his salary into the six figure bracket, and judging by his performances this season, it feels more than justified.
City supporters certainly think so, with one Sky Blue calling this development the ‘best news of the week’ – find all of their best verdicts from Twitter down below.
