British television Sky Sports has learned that representatives of striker Raheem Sterling have twice met with the English champions’ leaders over the past month, but both meetings have been in vain. Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, Nicolás Otamendi and David Silva, have already renewed with the club.
Sterling, whose current contract is valid until June 2020, received a renewal proposal that would extend the membership to the club until 2022, but a dispute over the orderly ‘grounded’ negotiations.
The English international currently earns 175,000 pounds (€ 198,800) per week, and intends to increase this salary to the highest paid level of the squad, as is the case of Kevin de Bruyne, who receives about 350 thousand pounds (397,800 euros) a week.
Manchester City officials will not be worried about the situation as they believe it will be possible to reach an agreement once the player returns from the World-18 in Russia.
