The highest paid England XI in world football – GiveMeSport

Phil Foden has done some extraordinary things since making his debut for Manchester City in 2017.

The English midfielder has made 170 appearances for the club in the past five years, scoring 45 goals.

He has helped them win 11 trophies, including four Premier League titles.

Foden, now 22, has been with City since he was four. And he will be the club for the foreseeable future.

According to Mike Keegan of The Daily MailFoden has signed a new six-year contract with the club.

He got a big pay raise. Foden’s old deal, which he signed in 2018, was worth ‘just’ £30,000 a week.

His new deal is worth a massive £225,000 a week. It will run for six years and Foden will earn £70 million during that period.

It will reportedly be signed and made official in the coming days or early next weeks.

Once the deal is official, Foden will become one of the highest paid English players in world football.
