Manchester City are reported to have offered a new record-breaking contract to Raheem Sterling. They want to keep the winger at the Etihad at least till 2021. According to reports, if the Englishman signs the contract, then it can make him the highest-paid player in Manchester City's history. Raheem Sterling agreed to a new deal with defending Premier League champions on November 9, 2018. It was supposed to end in 2023, but it seems like City want to renew their terms to make sure that the winger does not leave the club anytime soon.
Raheem Sterling's reported salary is around £300,000 a week. If he agrees to the new deal, the salary can rise up to £380,000 a week. After Manchester United broke their ties with Alexis Sanchez, David de Gea is the only player who earns that amount of money on a weekly basis. Raheem Sterling can match his level with the new deal.
