Sterling signs contract extension to 2023

"Manchester City are delighted to announce Raheem Sterling has signed a three-year contract extension", City announced via their official website on Friday. Of course, playing that high up the pitch has its benefits and detriments but, at least in fantasy, it's more of the former.

Guardiola believes that is unfair, however, and insists Sterling is becoming stronger as a player and an individual.

Although Sterling started brightly at City, his form tailed off after Christmas in the 2015-16 season, mirroring the malaise that typified the end of Manuel Pellegrini's managerial tenure. Sterling was not flawless, but 10 goals and 19 assists in a transitional campaign made sur his manager's faith was restored. City did not quite do that a year ago - they bought three full-backs, a goalkeeper and a couple of central defenders - but there is no need to labour the point. We have to win all the titles we play for.

"You can't have a go at Raheem Sterling for doing that". Despite sitting 29 points behind the Chelsea talisman on the season, the Englishman is actually equal or better in nine of 15 scoring categories.

That man, according to Simon Mullock of the Sunday Mirror, was none other than Raheem Sterling, who extended his contract until 2023 earlier this week. You want to try and develop and get better. Joining Manchester City from Liverpool back in 2015 for an initial £44 million, the England global has showcased that he has what it takes to potentially become a future Ballon d'Or victor.

Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly both looked to be in good spirits as they took part in Manchester United training ahead of Sunday's trip to Manchester City. Now he can control these kinds of emotions much better.

All of those positives when picking Sterling do come with a downside, however.

"The first season", Guardiola said, "he was scared". You don't come over and give someone a ticking off.

In August, it was reported that Sterling wanted the terms of his new deal to match those of City's top earners Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero.
