Manchester City are in advanced talks to extend Rico Lewis’ contract and offer the player a new long-term deal, reports Nico Schira.
Pep Guardiola considers him a future top player.
The player who has recently earned a few caps for City is considered as a future top player and possible a long term replacement for Kyle Walker.
Rico Lewis (17) made his official start for Manchester City in the final Champions League group stage game against Sevilla.
The teenager scored a goal in that match, which drew City level with the Spanish club as they were trailing by a goal at half time.
Pep Guardiola has expressed high belief and esteem in Lewis’ soccer capabilities hence the contract extension.
Manchester City are reportedly in ‘advanced talks’ to put a deal in place for the defender to keep him at the club for a long period.
