Manchester City have reportedly opened talks with Raheem Sterling over a new contract at the club.
The England international only extended his current deal at the Etihad last year, however, the club are keen to reward the forward who has elevated his performances once again this season.
According to the Mirror, the Premier League champions are keen to secure the long-term future of the 24-year-old, with Sterling having scored 18 goals in all competitions for club and country so far this season to further cement his position as one of Europe’s finest attacking talents.
Sterling’s current Manchester City deal is believed to be worth around £300,000-a-week, a deal which is set to improve as Pep Guardiola’s side look to ward of reported interest from Real Madrid.
Sterling joined City from Liverpool in a £49m deal in 2015 and has since won two Premier League titles amongst a host of major honours.
The winger was named as the PFA Young Player of the Year and Football Writer’s Footballer of the Year last season as City completed English football’s first-ever domestic treble, Sterling having scored 83 goals in 203 appearances since moving to the Etihad four years ago.
