Manchester City have opened talks with forward Raheem Sterling about a new long-term contract.

Sterling, 24, signed a deal in November 2018 that runs to 2023 but City are keen to secure his future.

It is understood any new contract would see him become one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League.

He won the 2018-19 Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year award and has been praised for his public stance on racism in society.
