    The preferable method would be to incentivise his contract as at least the rise will then equate to both the club and the individual achieving goals which will result in a benefit to City.

    Case in point being Sanchez. Nobody saw such a fall in grace and a 3/4 year contract is a long time in football and once you give that contract there is no getting rid of them.

    The actual story was earlier this week and the premise is correct.

    City want to extend his deal already after a year and beyond 2023.

    £450k a week though, typical Star bullshit.

    Never pay over the odds, it spreads to other players and leads to disharmony In the dressing room, and to be honest this season's performances from sterling it's a no from me

    Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

    This must be one of the trickiest aspects of running a big club.

    Do you actually think that Liverpool will overtake United financially if we do? It has been clear for a while that our owners have a overtake united financially and footballing wise strategy which may happen but to me Liverpool seem more obsessed with league and champion league win tallies.

    You think Aguero and Silva have lived in Manchester for almost a decade on the same/less money than they could get at Barcelona and Real?

    Sign up Sane for 250k week and Mbappe.
    We will then be actually unstoppable with Kev behind.
    We lack pace without Leroy - God i miss him.

    As we renew key players contracts the bar will inevitably rise, the key is keeping it in check and not hand out a contract that’s going to force you to up every other one like United and Arsenal do. Our wage structure isn’t something unique or special, we pay big money on a par with anybody else bar the stupid but we do it in a sensible way this won’t change whilst the people running the club remain here.
