In recent months, the Etihad club have shifted their focus from signing a plethora of knew talent to re-signing some of their most vital players to long term deals. 

Kevin De Bruyne, Ederson, Ruben Dias, and John Stones are among the first team stars who have recently committed their long term futures to the Premier League champions. 

And while Pep Guardiola and the fans will be delighted to see some of the squad's most important pieces put pen to paper, securing the future of one specific member of the squad will be viewed as the most important to the club - Phil Foden.

As per the reports, Foden would be set to earn up to £100,000 more per week than his current weekly wages, bringing into the upper echelon of earners at the club.
