The Father Ruben Dias has been extended by Manchester City until summer 2027.
A well deserved raise for a lynchpin of our club. He has played exceptional and has vaulted himself in to the conversation among the best center backs in the world.
This extension is noteworthy because he reportedly doubled his wages to be more in line with other elite defenders around the world. He still fits in our wage structure so it’s a real win-win.
His collective successes have raised his awards profile as well leading to numerous individual awards, including the FWA, Premier League and Etihad Player of the Season awards, as well as being named the UEFA Champions League Defender of the Season last week.
Dias spoke about his new deal-
“I’m very happy to sign the new deal,” Dias said. “I have enjoyed every single minute of my time at City since joining last year.
“Playing for City has surpassed all my expectations and it’s an absolute pleasure to be part of such an incredible squad.
“To be part of the squad that achieved so much last season was incredible and made us all hungry to achieve even more.
“Now I just want to try and play my part in helping us be successful this season and beyond.”
