Contract news! Possible extensions are looming for Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez. Rumors as early as this weekend have hinted that they could all sign before the window opens this Summer.
Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Riyad Mahrez are at different stages of contract negotiations and it is not certain that all three will stay at #ManCity. If any of them do not renew, they are likely be sold this summer.— City Xtra (@City_Xtra) February 22, 2022

It’s great news for us as fans who want this core to stay together for a while as they have been the nucleus to winning as much as City have under Pep. Each player has contributed and Mahrez and Sterling especially so in the recent months. These two players have a high chance of being re-signed here soon.
For Gabriel, many suitors are interested in him and he is the one with more questions than the others. Suitors have included Italian giants Juventus, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. Ultimately, it’s his personal decision, but I’d have to imagine the competition and rotating can’t be all too great for him, especially if he could be a 1/1A player in Italy or Spain.
We’ll have to wait and see. Good news on this front could come quicker than most fans expect.
