Manchester City wonderkid Phil Foden will sign a new six-year contract on Monday and pledge his future to his boyhood club, James Ducker of the Telegraph reports.
Foden’s contract extension has long been rumoured and it appears that tomorrow will be the day, with the club possibly set to announce it on the same day.
The ‘Stockport Iniesta’ has broken into Pep Guardiola’s first team squad and although starts have been rare, the 18-year-old believes he is in the right hands under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola.
Guardiola wants to handle Foden’s development carefully and gradually integrate him into the team. Foden has only started Carabao Cup games this season, but has come off the bench in 10 games across the Premier League and Champions League.
A Champions League start for Foden could come on Wednesday when City take on Hoffenheim at home, with Pep Guardiola ready to rotate his squad with qualification to the next stage confirmed.
With Jadon Sancho quitting the Etihad Stadium for Borussia Dortmund last year and Brahim Diaz looking Real Madrid-bound, there were some fears Foden might decide to follow – but the lifelong Blue will pledge his future to the Premier League giants in news that is sure to delight all City supporters.
