Manchester City are ready to open talks with Phil Foden over a lucrative new contract to reflect his emergence as one of their most important players.

Foden scored the winning goals in both legs of City's Champions League quarter-final wins over Borussia Dortmund, to set up a semi-final showdown with Paris St Germain.

England midfielder Foden, 20, has now scored 13 goals this season and filled the void left by the departure of David Silva last summer, as well as keeping Raheem Sterling out of the City side.
