English footballer, Raheem Sterling, 23, has reportedly committed his long-term future to Manchester City by verbally agreeing on a new five-year bumper deal.
According to SportMail, Sterling’s improved wages will see him become one of City’s top earners on £300,000-per-week, and the best paid English footballer.
Negotiations are said to have been ongoing for months but Sterling is understood to have accepted the fresh terms, with the contract expected to be formally signed and announced in the coming weeks.
Sources familiar with the deal believe that the size of his new contract for the footballer who previously earns £180,000 a week will become the first Englishman to ever surpass £100million in career earnings, including commercial deals and bonuses before he reaches the age of 25.
Manchester City signed the forward for a fee of £49m from Liverpool back in July 2015.
