Raheem Sterling

The England ace has agreed a three year extension worth £300,000-a-week that will keep him at the Etihad until 2023.

Sky Sports News reported on November 1 that Sterling's representatives had reached a verbal agreement with City over a new deal.

Sterling has gone on to win the Premier League and EFL Cup during his time at the Etihad Stadium, playing a key role in last term's historic title success.

"I'm delighted to sign", he said. That decision was perceived to be for money at the time but Carragher is convinced Sterling made the right choice as a youngster, even if it was bad news for The Reds. It's really paid off for me and I'm really grateful.

"Every season you come in you want to do better than your previous season".

Just as significantly, he represents everything we want in our best young England players; technically gifted, focused, ambitious, hungry to learn and very intelligent tactically.

"With the facilities we've got here there's no reason not to".

Sterling is in his fourth season with City after joining the club from Liverpool in 2015. With the coaching staff and the players we have in this team it's the ideal environment to develop and get better'.

However, the England global opted to remain under the tutelage of Guardiola, as they continue preparations for Saturday's derby clash with Manchester United.

Sterling bagged three of those goals, while also winning a controversial penalty against Shakhtar that he later admitted shouldn't have been given. His statistics tell their own story.

"He's quick, strong and excellent in front of goal - everything a modern-day forward needs to excel", he added.

Txiki Begiristain, City's sporting director, has secured another big name for the long-term and was obviously delighted.
