Sterling's deal is thoutght to be worth up to £300,000 a week, which would put him among the best paid players in the league.

" I felt from the minute I got here it was the right choice for me. It’s paid off and I’m really grateful."

Sterling joined City from Liverpool for £49 million in 2015 and won the league title and League Cup last season.

“This is a significant moment for the Club," added City's Director of Football Txiki Begiristain.

"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. We’re all delighted he has committed his future to City.”
