According to a report from Sky Sports via City Chief, Raheem Sterling could be on the verge of signing a huge new contract following ‘positive’ initial discussions with his agent – but some supporters are slightly divided over the figures.
Sterling, who was a key part of City’s historic domestic treble-winning side of last season, scoring 17 goals and assisting 10 others in the league as well as bagging the winning penalty in a Carabao Cup final shoot-out against Chelsea, could be handed a much better contract that would take him above Kevin De Bruyne in earnings.
Would Kingsley Coman be a good replacement for Leroy Sane?
Reportedly, the Englishman could sign a deal that would elevate his current £275,000 per week wage beyond De Bruyne’s £350,000 per week deal – prompting some supporters to ask questions.
There’s no denying Sterling’s crucial impact over the last two seasons, showing immense progress under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad and seemingly catapulting into a world-class forward.
Here’s how the fans reacted with mixed opinions over his alleged new deal.
Lets not overpamper this lad, i know he has the quality but anything over 400k would be extravagant

Deserved, he’s quickly becoming our most marketable star.

Thats an insane amount but if it means he stays then I’m happy

No don’t get it at 400k. It’s too much and maybe it will break the wage structure?

Omg Tears are pouring in the comments, Sterling is making his life. Clearly the best and most reliable. 4 straight seasons of being a regular starter , affects game, never injured. You can keep crying, he is the best currently

Telephone numbers. Who needs extra cash when you are on £275,000 per week? £14,300,000 per year??? 🥴
