Manchester City plan to make FANTASTIC striker the highest-paid teen in the country: He’s worth it!

Manchester City may break the bank this summer to build their own squad, but that hasn’t stopped them from trying to build a youth movement in the event that the dream team falls through. This is a great place to start.

Manchester City are in talks with Daniel Sturridge to make him the highest-paid teenager in the country — thanks to a £45,000-a-week offer.

The City golden boy, 19, has yet to agree a new deal, despite being out of contract in the summer.

And because City value him at around £8million, they are ready to offer him around FIVE times his current wage and pay him around £45,000 a week. (The Sun)

Sturridge’s rise in pay shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that’s seen him play. His pace and finish are fantastic for a player of his age. And judging by his progression over the last year or so, a £45,000-a-week contract could end up being a steal in a couple years if he lives up to his billing.

What do Man City supporters think about the proposed contract?
