It’s amazing what a few last-minute winners can do.

Man City are set to make Raheem Sterling the Premier League’s top-paid player.

The league leaders want to reward the England international for his match-winning form this season with a weekly wage of approximately £300,000-a-week.

According to the Sun, Sterling is likely to leapfrog Man United’s Paul Pogba, who is on £290,000 a per week, to become the best paid player in the league.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was on more before his injury meant new terms with a fresh deal for this season.

Sterling has two full seasons left on his current deal and City want his future tied to the club.

A new contract was likely at the end of the current campaign but City will accelerate talks as Sterling has made amazing progress under Guardiola.

Sterling was reported to be on £180,000 a week when he arrived from Liverpool in July 2015.
