Manchester City will offer Phil Foden an improved long-term contract after the 18-year-old’s impressive debut season.
The Telegraph report the Stockport born midfielder will be offered the chance to sit down with the club, along with his representatives, to discuss his future at City after turning 18 on May 28th and possibly agree on a new five-year deal.
The 18-year-old is under contract at the Etihad Stadium until 2020, and all parties involved in negotiations are ‘relaxed’ about reaching an agreement for the player to commit his long-term future to his boyhood club, according to the report.
The report goes further by stating City boss Pep Guardiola is keen on keeping Foden in the first-team squad next season and has rejected any notion of the player leaving on loan, despite a high volume of interest from Premier League clubs.
Foden is widely regarded as one of the most exceptional young players in European football right now, and his talent was rewarded with ten appearances for City last season – enough to see him become the youngest ever Premier League winner.
