Raheem Sterling delighted to ink new Man City deal

Raheem Sterling delighted to ink new Man City deal

Real Madrid are still looking for their Cristiano Ronaldo replacement, but their top Gareth Bale replacement has rejected any move by signing a new long-term deal.

"I know I will be in the same position sooner or later", Guardiola said.

A breakdown of the deal shows that the 23-year-old winger will earn about £275,000-a-week for the three-and-half years the contract will run. "My development here has been incredible", said Sterling. "It's paid off and I'm really grateful", he added.

The future: "There's definitely a lot more (to come), there's stuff I'm still working on, there's never a time where I feel this is where it stops, I always want to get better and get my numbers up, score more goals and get more assists".

Carragher went on to say: "Since Pep Guardiola arrived, Raheem's game has gone up a level so he now ranks alongside Harry Kane as England's best player".

"With the facilities we've got here there's no reason not to".

Sterling, who has scored seven goals for the club this season, joined City from Liverpool in a £49m deal in 2015.

However, the England worldwide opted to remain under the tutelage of Guardiola, as they continue preparations for Saturday's derby clash with Manchester United.

Sterling bagged three of those goals, while also winning a controversial penalty against Shakhtar that he later admitted shouldn't have been given.

Sterling's representatives have spent the last two months negotiating with City's director of football Txiki Begiristain.

United endured a hard start to the new season and, prior to a recent strong run, were marooned in mid-table in the Premier League, with speculation building that Mourinho would be sacked. His statistics tell their own story.

Get closer to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Benjamin Mendy and the rest of Pep Guardiola's team. "We are both in quite similar situations, we just keep going and going", the City manager said.
