Man City picked up where they left off on Sunday, with the Citizens beginning their quest to retain their Premier League crown with a dominant opening day win. In truth, their opponents – Unai Emery’s Arsenal – had very few answers for the Citizens’ dominance.
However, what has got fans talking following the conclusion of the game isn’t solely the performance, indeed, many are instead focused on the future of one of the Citizens’ most important players.
Clearly, then, Guardiola is desperate for Sterling to sign a new contract. His current deal ends in 2020, and so whilst the need to tie him down isn’t an immediate one, it remains imperative that the club agree fresh terms as soon as possible.
Sterling played a starring role for Man City over the weekend, with the Englishman bagging a goal for his club.
Lots of Man City fans have taken to Twitter following the words from Pep Guardiola, and it seems as though most are on the same page as the boss.
They’re eager to see Sterling sign fresh terms, too…

Sterling isn't going anywhere, even if he wanted to go where's he likely to end up…. He'll sign

If Raheem Sterling Signs a New 5 Year Deal by March 2019, I will be the Happiest.
The figures have to be no more than £240K a week inclusive bonuses. He deserves that in the next 5 Years in a CITY shirt. Raheem wants £300K a week Contract.

If he becomes more consistent and has another great season then I don’t see why not tbh. But consistency is the key word here for club and country.
