Manchester City are looking to extend midfielder Phil Foden’s contract in order to fend off interest from Juventus, according to reports in the Italian media.
The 20-year-old is believed to be on the radar of the Serie A champions and it seems the Citizens will look to end any speculation about the England international’s future by offering an improvement on his current deal.
Foden’s current contract expires in 2024 but City are keen to improve his basic wage, with reports suggesting that they may be prepared to triple his salary.
The attacking midfielder has been used sparingly by manager Pep Guardiola in recent league games, having played just nine minutes against Sheffield United and being an unused substitute versus Liverpool at the weekend.
However, Foden did begin the season as a regular starter and, with the intense fixture schedule, he will undoubtedly play a key role in the coming weeks and months.
