Manchester City want to offer two of their biggest stars bumper contracts.

Fans of the game will know that Manchester City are no strangers to splashing the cash, especially since they have been under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola. In fact, many would argue this is the only reason they have created the dynasty they have in recent history.

But City fans won’t care, as long as they are competing at the top level and housing the best players in the game. Two of those, of course, being Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, who always appear to be in and amongst the goals for the Citizens.

Now, the good thing about these two players, besides their immense talent and ability, is that they don’t run out of contract until the summer of 2023. This is plenty of time, and by no means not the time to be hysterical.

However, Manchester City as a football club are always prudent, especially when it comes to sorting out their contracts. This is why it comes as no surprise that, according to 90min, the Sky Blues are already preparing to offer both De Bruyne and Sterling new contracts.

It is thought that these aren’t just any old extensions, either. Both De Bruyne and Sterling will be offered contracts that will make them the highest paid earners in the English top-flight, at around £400,000. This would take them above Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who recently signed an extension at the Emirates Stadium.

Is it warranted, though? Well, of course. De Bruyne is by far and away the best midfielder in the Premier League and Sterling is proving to be prolific and a danger to any defender. With them secured, Manchester City can focus on building an even brighter future and besides, they have the money to do so.

Next. Pep Guardiola sends many coded messages. dark

Do you think Manchester City will tie down these two players?
