- Raheem Sterling is looking for a £100,000 raise on his current deal with Manchester City
- Representatives of the England forward and City chiefs will hold talks over a new deal soon
- Belgium star Kevin De Bruyne is the club's highest-paid player
Manchester City ace Raheem Sterling is demanding a substantial £100,000 raise in his current £175,000-a-week deal that will expire in 2020.
According to a UK Times report, representatives of the Three Lions forward and Manchester City chiefs, will be locked in discussions over a new deal in the coming days.
The England international appears settled at City, but will not be asking for parity with the Citizens best-paid player, Kevin De Bruyne.
On the other hand, the Premier League defending champions are aware of the Financial Fair Play rule.
The Belgian, who penned an extension last January until 2023, would pocket a reported wages of £250,000 a week rising to £342,000 a week, including bonuses, image rights as well as a signing-on fee that will last the entire duration of his new contract.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Manchester City star David Silva has hinted he would fancy a move away from the English topflight and join Spanish side Las Palmas in 2020.
According to a UK Sun report, the 32-year-old midfielder prefers his baby boy Mateo to spend his formative years in his motherland of Gran Canaria.
Interestingly, Las Palmas were relegated from Spanish topflight last campaign, but Silva’s main concern heading home is more of family reason than football.
