Manchester City discuss a ‘large-scale contract extension’ and transfer rumours

John Stones has played a key role in Manchester City’s recent success and Pep Guardiola will be hoping to keep the defender at the Etihad for the foreseeable future.



Manchester City are reportedly “in talks” with John Stones over a new contract that could keep him at the Etihad until 2027.
Stones has become an important part of Pep Guardiola’s side in recent seasons and would fill the need to move into central midfield.

He was one of City’s key players in winning the treble last season.
The centre-back has signed a five-year contract in 2021 and, according to Football Transfers, the clause states that new negotiations could start in the 2023/2024 season.


The report also suggests City are lining up a potential new deal for Guardiola, who has enjoyed unparalleled success at the Etihad.
The manager’s current contract expires in 2025, but there may be the possibility of an extension.



Elsewhere, Eberechi Eze’s hopes of a future move have been dealt a blow as Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson revealed a new Palace deal is imminent.
City had eyed Eze’s late moves in the summer as part of an unusual late raid.

Guardiola’s side eventually signed Mateus Nunes from Wolves for £53m a day.
Eze has been part of the Premier League’s top clubs for a long time and spent his most prolific season with Palace last season.

But the 25-year-old’s hopes of a comeback are now in vain.
“We had good news with Michael Oliseh earlier this year and now with two more (Jordan Ayew and Sam Johnston),” Hodgson said on Thursday.

“I think the club is working very hard with Eberechi Eze and I am confident that we will be able to announce him very soon.”
