Man City standout
Raheem Sterling has been on Manchester City’s books for close to four and a half years now.
Since his big-money move from Liverpool, Sterling has gone on to rack up 210 appearances across all competitions for the Sky Blues.
In those 210 ties, Sterling has found the back of the net 83 times and also provided 70 assists.
Sterling has also helped City garner a plethora of trophies.
Arguably Sterling’s best season with the Manchester powerhouse was the 2018/19 campaign.
The England international scored 25 and assisted 18 in 51 games across all competitions as City went on to become the first male side to win the English domestic treble.

Sterling set for new deal?
Sterling’s current contract with Manchester City runs up until July of 2023.
But despite the England international having over three years left on his current deal, City apparently want to tie Sterling down to a fresh contract.
According to the Evening Standard, Manchester City have opened contract talks with Sterling.
The ES claims that the latest negotiations over a new deal for Sterling began on Monday.
The report from the Standard also speculates any new deal could make Sterling City’s highest-paid player:
Any potential new deal is likely to make the former Liverpool star the highest paid player at City, with his previous contract believed to be worth up to £300,000-a-week.
