MANCHESTER CITY star Phil Foden is set to be handed a new contract just days after his hat-trick in the 6-3 win over Manchester United.
The 22-year-old starred alongside Erling Haaland as City hammered their rivals and his week is about to get even better.
Foden is ready to put pen to paper on a new deal that will keep him at the club for a further five or six years.
The attacking midfielder is ready to accept an offer that sees him earn a whopping £225,000-a-week, claim the Daily Mail.
Reports say he is currently earning £65k-a-week with his salary about to be more than tripled.
His current contract expires in 2024 and Foden has never had any intention of leaving his boyhood clubs despite talks being delayed due to a change in his management.
