Manchester City will be desperate to secure all three points in the Manchester derby tomorrow as they take on a Manchester United side that are full of confidence.
The Citizens have been a force to be reckoned with under Pep Guardiola this season, with a second successive Premier League title well within their sights. Interestingly, it appears as if Man City have secured a huge player agreement, as according to Sun Sport, Raheem Sterling has signed a three year contract extension.
Raheem Sterling has handed Manchester City the perfect derby boost by agreeing a three year contract extension.
Interestingly, the new deal, which will keep the England ace at the Etihad until 2023, could eventually earn him around £300,000 a week.
Indeed, the agreement is timely as City were starting to worry about the 23-year-old’s long-term future with just 18 months remaining on his existing deal.
So, it is a reward for Sterling’s superb recent form which has seen him a standout performer in Pep Guardiola’s side.
Raheem Sterling has established himself as one of the best attackers in world football, let alone the Premier League this season, with seven goals and seven assists to his name already.
Indeed, the Citizens will be delighted that they’ve managed to tie him down to a new deal as he will play a huge part in their future, including their push for the title this season.
