Manchester City set to offer surprise package new £50,000-a-week deal – report

Manchester City are preparing to reward Oleksandr Zinchenko with a new contract after his impressive performances at left-back this season, according to The Sun on Sunday.

Zinchenko, 21, was floundering on PSV Eindhoven’s bench a year ago, but has impressed Pep Guardiola with his work rate and versatility, and with Benjamin Mendy and Fabian Delph enduring injury problems, the Ukrainian has made 9 appearances this season, 6 of them in 2018.

And having won over Pep, it is reported that Zinchenko is set to be offered a new deal that will smash through the £50,000-a-week barrier.

Oleks’ versatility has led to Guardiola converting him from a left midfielder to a left-back with good results this season.

“It started directly when I came back from PSV and from first training session,” Zinchenko said of his new role.

“Before that I played in this position a few times, around five to seven games.

“I was mainly in midfield but now I think I can play everywhere.”
