Manchester City has stopped the negotiations over Raheem Sterling’s contract.
has paused the negotiations overSterling’s
contract renewal, and Star claims that they did this because Sterling wants to hire a new agent after parting ways with Aidy Ward, who had been working as his representative.
Both Sterling and the club seem to be okay with the situation as the Citizens have agreed on a raise in the 26-year-old striker’s wage. The England international’s contract commits him to the club until 2023, he receives £300,000 a week, and the club has agreed to raise his wage.
Raheem Sterling has been experiencing a good season with the Citizens scoring his 100th goal for the club in September and moving past 250 games for the Citizens six years after his transfer from Liverpool.
He has made 25 appearances for Manchester City this season, helping the club to reach the leading position on the Premier League table and also reaching FA Cup’s semi-finals against Chelsea. They will face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-finals and Tottenham in the Carabao Cup final in the next four weeks to fight for a quadruple in the season.
At the international level, Sterling was England’s captain in their 5-0 victory over San Marino in the 2022 World Cup qualifications scoring his 14th national goal.
