Phil Foden set to triple Man City wages with bumper new deal but England star sent warning over contract length July 10, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Phil Foden is set to become one of Man City’s highest earners.

The 22-year-old will pen a huge six-year contract extension that will keep him at the Etihad until his late 20s.

The Sun report that Foden will triple his wages from his current salary of £65,000-a-week to around £200,000-a-week.

It would put him among the highest earners at the Premier League champions and a deserved reward for his performances at City.

Foden came through the club’s academy to establish himself as a star for club and country.

He is already a four-time Premier League champion.

His wages would still be dwarfed by the £375,000-a-week Erling Haaland earns, but City do have wiggle room in their budget amid Raheem Sterling’s imminent departure to Chelsea.

The club also want to tie midfielder Rodri down to a long-term deal.

But Foden has been warned about the length of his new City deal by former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino.

He told Weekend Sports Breakfast: “It was always coming because he is a terrific young player with an immense amount of talent. 

“The interesting thing for me is that it’s a six year deal.

“The free transfer scenario they are trying to avoid. It’s a long time to sign a contract for a footballer.

“An awful lot can change. Not many want to got to five. Most players go to four, when you are a certain age, because you know wages can go past you fairly quickly.

“We are talking about ridiculous amounts of money, but even in that world, £200,000-a-week people might be saying ‘why did he sign that deal’, when in four years’ time £400,000-a-week might be the amount.”
