Manchester City are looking to open talks with Raheem Sterling in the coming months over a proposed new contract, Dean Jones has reported today.
City want to extend the 23-year-old’s current contract at the Etihad Stadium as the club have previously done with many first-team players this season.

Should Sterling renew his contract with City, he would join Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho and Nicolas Otamendi in placing their future in City’s hands for the coming years.
The 23-year-old’s form this campaign is arguably the finest of his career and City believe rewarding the England international with a contract until 2023 is the gratitude Sterling deserves.
Sterling has scored 20 goals in 37 games this season and is a certainty to be named in England’s World Cup squad for the tournament in Russia.
City are hoping to secure Sterling’s signature before the World Cup to ensure all parties could swiftly rebuff any potential interest.
