Foden, Kane, Sancho: The highest-paid English XI in world football

Phil Foden in action for Manchester City

Phil Foden has done some extraordinary things since making his debut for Manchester City in 2017.

The English midfielder has made 170 appearances for the club in the past five years, scoring 45 goals.

He has helped them win 11 trophies, including four Premier League titles.

Foden, now 22, has been at City since the age of 4. And he is going to be the club for the foreseeable future.

According to Mike Keegan of The Daily Mail, Foden has agreed a new six-year deal with the club.

He has been given a massive pay-rise. Foden’s old deal, which he signed in 2018, was worth ‘just’ £30,000-per-week.

His new deal is worth a huge £225,000-per-week. It will run for six years, with Foden set to earn £70m throughout that period.

It will reportedly be signed and made official in the next coming days or early next weeks.

Once the deal is official, Foden will become one of the highest-paid English players in world football.
