Raheem Sterling extends Manchester City deal until 2023

Man City news

The 23-year-old attacker has come on leaps and bounds at City since joining from Liverpool in 2015, a deal which may eventually cost the club almost £50 million ($A90 million).

Sterling, who has scored seven goals for the club this season, joined City from Liverpool in a £49m deal in 2015.

Reacting after signing the dotted lines Sterling said: "I'm delighted to sign".

The England worldwide has established himself as one of the Premier League's top attacking players, and put together a career year last season as City won the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

Sources told ESPN FC earlier this month that the England global had verbally agreed a new five-year deal that would make him one of the highest earners at the club.

But Sterling feels at home at City and believes the Premier League champions are the flawless place for him to continue developing. "It's paid off and I'm really grateful".

"This is a significant moment for the Club", added City's Director of Football Txiki Begiristain.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly struggling to reach a new agreement with their star winger Raheem Sterling.

'He's quick, strong and excellent in front of goal - everything a modern-day forward needs to excel. You enjoy that but at the same time it is a bit of pressure. If City win they will already have 10 from a possible 12 points against their biggest rivals, well advanced in their title defence. The vision the club gave me sold me straight away. With the coaching staff and the players we have in this team it's the ideal environment to develop and get better'.

"Every season you come in you want to do better than your previous season. If I'm producing and other players are producing that will only help the team".
