‘Seems A Bit Premature’ ‘I Think He’s Earned It’ Fans Debate Whether City Star Deserves Contract Extension

Manchester City are planning to offer centre-back John Stones a contract extension, according to reports in the English media.

The 26-year-old has worked his way back into manager Pep Guardiola’s first-team plans this season, having struck up a good partnership with Ruben Dias in recent matches.

However, despite Stones having starting four of the last five Premier League games, some supporters on Twitter are yet to be convinced that the player deserves a new deal:

It has been quite a turnaround for Stones. The player was linked with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham over the summer after getting limited first-team opportunities last campaign, but Guardiola has obviously seen something in training which has persuaded him to move the defender above the likes of Aymeric Laporte in the pecking order.

In regards to the contract, Stones’ current deal expires in 2022 so a decision will have to made on the player’s future very soon anyway and it looks like they will try to keep him.
