Sterling wage demands stall Man City contract talks

Sterling wage demands stall Man City contract talks

Speaking ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Manchester City and Belgium playmaker Kevin De Bruyne has backed a certain star he believes will "light up" the tournament in Russian Federation. Tuesday afternoon saw news break that the England worldwide has rejected a contract offer from his current side, and that the two parties are far away from an agreement on a new deal.

THE WORLD CUP kicks off on June 14 - but which 2018/19 Premier League clubs have the most players heading to Russian Federation?

The 23-year old winger joins his England team-mates on the plane to Russian Federation on Tuesday, having enjoyed his finest season to date, scoring 23 goals in all competitions for the Premier League champions.

A new four-year deal stretching to 2022 was thought to be on the table for Sterling, but despite his representatives meeting with City twice since the end of the season, they remain some way apart on an improved salary.

Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva, and Nicolas Otamendi have all signed new contracts with the club, but City are seemingly relaxed about Sterling's situation. Sterling meanwhile is entering the last two years of a deal, which presently earns him half that figure, around £175,000 a week. Under Guardiola he has flourished in a free attacking role, finishing as the Premier League's fifth top scorer and just three league goals behind City top marksman, Sergio Aguero. Why would Sterling be leaving the Etihad?

'At Manchester City he's so focused on success and I know he would have the same attitude with England'.

How do you think England are going to do at the World Cup?
