Also, Man City’s center midfielder Rodri will be given a huge pay increase as the Cityzens plan to start contract talks with their important players to keep them for a long period. Both Phil Foden and Rodri have just two years left in their contract with Man City and there are no hiccups expected in either case.

Phil Foden who also plays for the England national team had already agreed to a long-term contract but talks about the renewal slowed down after his pal and trusted legal adviser, Richard Green passed away last year. Manchester City executives are now ready to reward the Englishman for being an important player in Pep Guardiola’s team.

Phil Foden has always been a Man City supporter from childhood and currently earns £65,000 a week. The 22-year-old joined City from the clubs’ academy and has established himself as a first-team player for both club and country.

Meanwhile, Rodri joined City from Atletico Madrid on a £62.5 million deal in 2019 and has taken over as the team’s best choice in the central midfield position. The Spanish player joined as a backup to former Manchester City player Fernandinho but he later got promoted to a regular starter for the club.

Note that Fernandinho left Man City after his contract expired.

Rodri currently earns around £125,000 a week and will face competition from England center midfielder Kalvin Philips who joined City from Leeds United this summer.

Negotiations for the contract renewal of both Phil Foden and Rodri are expected to be trouble-free and fresh terms concluded swiftly.

Man City are reportedly paying new striker Erling Haaland around £375,000 a week, but the six times English Premier League champions do have wriggle room on their wage bill. The sale of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal and Raheem Sterling to Chelsea this summer will help them to save around £400,000 a week.

This will give them room to pay for the new contracts that will be given to Phil Foden and Rodri. City could also lose their defender Nathan Ake to Chelsea this summer, as the Netherlands international has already agreed on personal terms with the Blues. However, they want to replace him before any offer from Chelsea will be accepted.
