The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted with the recent upturn in Raheem Sterling’s form.
Raheem Sterling has started the season in very impressive form despite being linked with a move to Arsenal in the summer window.
According to a recent report by The Mirror, Manchester City will reward him with a new contract with talks over a fresh deal set to commence in the new year.
With the summer arrival of Bernardo Silva to accompany the likes of Leroy Sane, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva and others in the attacking departments at Man City, Sterling’s future looked in doubt.
The 22-year-old was linked with a deadline day switch to Arsenal with Alexis Sanchez going the other way.
But the former Liverpool man has answered his critics since the transfer window slammed shut, scoring eight goals in twelve outings since then.
With talks set to start in January, it is likely that Manchester City will hand Sterling an increase in wages.
The England international’s current salary of £180k per week is thought to be set to increased to £200k per week as Pep Guardiola rewards Sterling for his impressive displays on the wing.
