Manchester City 'to offer Raheem Sterling £300k a week'

Man City are set to make Raheem Sterling the Premier League's top-paid player.

Surely this experienced football A-lister did not believe Southampton should have taken on a rampant City in a straight battle of passing football that could only have ended in one way, so Guardiola's uncontrollable excitement in the aftermath of his side's dramatic win would have been a credible excuse for his behaviour.

Sterling's 13 goals this term - his best-ever scoring return - coupled with improved consistency - has convinced the Citizens that they now need to look at his situation.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate said: "Certainly Raheem has resilience".

"But you only achieve that through consistency, so he has done as well as he could so far this season".

"We are not getting carried away, I think a lot of people around us are getting carried away, but if you go in the dressing room it's calm and focused".

'I was telling Nathan Redmond how good he is at the end, ' he said after City's 2-1 win.

"I felt it could still happen, even that late in added time. But they didn't want to play, they were time-wasting from the ninth minute". "Being super cautious, I see progression in the team, but until we've won silverware, it's not enough".

David Silva has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2020. "It does no favours to the sports journalists in the game that I like, happily work with and genuinely respect".

"I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven-and-a-half seasons here and, with Pep in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond".
