Manchester City are currently planning to give Phil Foden millions of more pounds. City will offer Foden a new deal possibly worth £100,000.
During the 2020-21 season, the 20-year-old has been in excellent form for Pep Guardiola’s side.
He has scored 13 goals and made nine assists in 41 appearances across all competitions.
“What fills me with a lot of pride at the moment is to see Phil doing really well,” said Paul Power, earlier this week.
“When I was working under Jim Cassell as part of the academy coaching set-up, we were all instrumental in helping to get Phil to sign for us as a nine-year-old,” the former Manchester-born City captain continued.
“Everyone knew he was the best player in the northwest when he was eight. [Manchester] United and Liverpool and Everton were all interested in signing Phil.
“But Phil’s dad is a big Blue and he said: ‘He ain’t going anywhere but City’ and I’m absolutely delighted to see how Phil has progressed.”
The Citizens are indeed eager to begin talks with the England international about a new deal.
City will offer Foden a new deal which may be worth up to £100,000 per week, according to The Mirror.
Foden’s latest contract at the Etihad Stadium has more than three years left on it. According to the report, he is currently paid £30,000 a week.
However, City have long since wanted to forge the new contract to represent his contribution to the team.
“His dad must be proud as anything to see him now in the first team and doing ever so well,” Power said, about Foden.
