In order to join the club’s highest earners, Manchester City striker Phil Foden is “prepared to TRIPLE his income” and “sign a new £200,000-a-week deal.” Rodri is also expected to receive a “huge pay boost.”
Talks are expected to go smoothly, with the England international already verbally agreeing on a deal that would see him triple his current wages at the Etihad.
Phil Foden and Rodri, a midfield combo for Manchester City, are both expected to receive significant wage increases as the team works to lock down the futures of its key players.
Raheem Sterling and Nathan Ake are expected to depart the club, therefore Pep Guardiola’s team is hoping to extend their busy summer window by signing two of their star players to long-term contracts.
According to the Sun, Foden is set to sign a new deal worth £200k-a-week that would see the England international sit amongst the highest-earning players at the club – tripling his current £65k-a-week deal.
With both Foden and Rodri having two years remaining on their current deals, the club is confident negotiations will go smoothly.
The City chiefs are looking to reward the 22-year-old with a new contract as he prepares to take up a bigger role at the club next season following the departure of Raheem Sterling.
Foden contributed nine goals and five assists in 28 Premier League last season as the Citizens claimed the league title – exactly matching his tally from the 2020-21 season.
Meanwhile, Spanish defensive midfielder Rodri, who arrived at the club for £62.5million from Atletico Madrid in 2019, is also set to agree on a new deal with City.
The 26-year-old is also expecting an increased deal from his current earnings of £125,000 a week.
The Spaniard has established himself as a key figure in Guardiola’s side – playing 46 games in the heart of midfield across the entire season.
