Man City lining up a new contract for a record-breaking player, Rico Lewis having broken into Guardiola’s team.
Rico Lewis, a teenage defender who has recently made his way into Pep Guardiola’s team, is said to be in line for a new deal with Manchester City.
The 18-year-old right-back, who has started every game for City since returning to English football as Kyle Walker recovers from an injury, is reportedly already in the process of signing a new contract with the Premier League winners, according to the Daily Mail.
Since Micah Richards, Lewis is the youngest English player to start a Premier League game for City.
In addition, the defender’s goal against Sevilla in November made him the youngest City player to ever score in the UEFA Champions League.
With Lewis currently earning just £ 5,000 a week, a new contract is more than deserved for the English youth international, with the defender making the leap from academy football to the first-team in a seamless fashion.
City’s academy has arguably been the best in England in recent years, and products like Lewis coming from the youth sides and into the seniors is something that every football fan loves to see, with a new contract more than deserved for the 18-year-old.
