Phil Foden has extended his contract at Manchester City and the deal is going to make him one of the best-paid young players.

Although

Phil Foden

has three years left on his current contract at

Manchester City

, the club have decided to keep him until 2027 and are going to announce it in the coming days, according to

Goal

.

The 21-year-old has been a lifelong Manchester City fan and has joined the club as a six-year-old and can not imagine joining another club.

"I can only see myself playing for Manchester City, considering how much I've supported them from a young age,"

he said earlier this year.

"It always helps when you play for a club you support."

Pep Guardiola

has been admiring Stockport-born Foden ever since his first start in a pre-season friendly in Houston against Manchester United in 2017 and has believed that Foden would gain more experience from being around the first team and learning from Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva rather than spending his time on loan.

He has been able to score 33 goals and win three Premier League winner’s medals through 130 appearances for Manchester City in all competitions. He has also made a start in a Champions League final.

Last week, Foden was named on the 30-man shortlist for the men’s Ballon d’Or alongside De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Ruben Dias, and Riyad Mahrez.

Although his early start to the season was disrupted by a foot injury that he picked up during England’s final of Euro 2020, he is expected to be a key part of Guardiola’s plans this season.

He can play as a left winger, a No. 10, or a false nine just like he did in the impressive win against Chelsea in September.
