Blues hope to get as much of their transfer activity concluded before June’s World Cup gets under way.
Manchester City are set to offer new contracts to as many as five players as a reward for the club winning last season’s Premier League title for the second time in the space of just three years, according to reports on Sky Sports.
The north-west outfit beat West Ham United 2-0 last weekend to win the title and now the club are understood to be determined to tie up as much of their transfer business as possible before the start of this summer’s Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil.
And top of City’s list of things to do is the renegotiation of a number of their star player’s deals, including the likes of goalkeeper Joe Hart, left-back Aleksandar Kolarov, front man Edin Dzeko and midfielders Samir Nasri and James Milner.
England international Hart, 27, has just two years left to run on his current contract at Eastlands and will now be rewarded with a new deal after a fine second half to the campaign which came after the shot stopper had been dropped by head coach Manuel Pellegrini before Christmas.
