The Daily Star have Manchester City fans nodding their heads in agreement here in the Football Transfer Tavern and we cannot blame them after hearing that James Milner could well be in line for a new bumper deal.
That will of course disappoint Liverpool and Arsenal fans, both of whom had gotten wind of Milner’s contractual situation, potentially eyeing a bargain deal for the England international.
However, considering City are willing to offer Milner a £90,000-a-week deal to keep him at the Etihad Stadium, they may well have to think again.
Regulars in the tavern seen to think that Milner is exactly the type of player who deserves a new deal unlike Yaya Toure whose performances have been rather hit and miss this term amidst previous concerns surrounding the Ivorian feeling unloved’.
We also note that City would be wise to keen Milner and make sure that a bargain like the Gareth Barry to Everton deal does not come to pass.
Manchester City fans. How highly do you rate Milner? Is he a player that would warrant a £90,000-a-week salary? Let us know your thoughts below.
