Raheem Sterling has extended his Manchester City contract by three years, prolonging his stay at the Etihad Stadium until 2023.
The 23-year-old has emerged as one of Europe’s best wingers over the last year and a key member of Pep Guardiola’s City side, and after months of contract negotiations has pledged his future to Premier League champions.
‘Raz’ already has 7 goals in 14 games this season, and told the official Man City website of his happiness at penning a new deal.
“I’m delighted to sign,” the England winger said. “My development here has been incredible.
“I felt from the minute I got here it was the right choice for me. It’s paid off and I’m really grateful.”
Txiki Begiristain, City’s sporting director, has secured another big name for the long-term and was obviously delighted.
“This is a significant moment for the Club,” said Txiki. “Raheem has improved dramatically in the past two seasons and is now one of the Premier League’s best attacking players. His statistics tell their own story.
“He’s quick, strong and excellent in front of goal – everything a modern-day forward needs to excel.”
