Raheem Sterling’s stunning wage demands to Manchester City revealed

Raheem Sterling will put pen to paper on a new Manchester City deal but only if they offer £300,000-a-week wages, claims The Daily Mirror.

City have secured the long-term futures of a number of key players since the turn of the year but have struggled to get Sterling to renew his current deal.

The England international has entered the final two years of his existing contract and Sterling wants his terms aligned with the club’s highest earners.

Pep Guardiola has reassured Sterling his position is not under threat following the club-record arrival of Riyad Mahrez earlier this summer.

Sterling played an integral part in City’s stunning Premier League-winning campaign last term, enjoying his best ever season in front of goal.

The 23-year-old failed to have the same impact with England at the 2018 World Cup and his performances in Russia may impact his ability to command £300,000-a-week wages.

Of players aged 23 and under in Europe’s top five leagues last season, Sterling scored the most goals (18).
