City has been busy tying down a number of senior players to longer-term contracts with Rodri signing a five-year deal earlier this week and an extension for Phil Foden expected to be announced in the near future. City has lost two wide players this summer with Raheem Sterling’s £47.5m ($57m) move to Chelsea confirmed following the departure of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal in a £45m ($55m) deal.
