Foden signed his new long-term deal on Monday afternoon with City delighted that he has chosen to stick around after seeing Jadon Sancho leave last year, with Brahim Diaz also poised to quit the club.
The 18-year-old, who has broken into Pep Guardiola’s first team plans, will reportedly earn in the region of £30,000-a-week, a heavily incentivised contract that includes clauses and bonuses based on the midfielder’s performances.
The ‘Stockport Iniesta’ has already made 13 appearances for City this season, although to date only two of those, both in the Carabao Cup, have been starts, with Phil often used as a late substitute with Guardiola determined to not rush his development and integrate him carefully.
