Manchester City vs. Fulham - Football Match Report

Sterling's current contract at City expires in 2020 and British media reports this week said the 23-year-old was seeking a 275,000 pounds a week deal, which would make him one of the club's highest paid players.

There was still time for Sane to put the ball in the net, only for the "goal" to be ruled out for offside, but City needed just 97 seconds of the second half to score again.

"City wanted me", he says in an interview for the Premier League Show.

Everybody is here because after three seasons I want to work with them and I think they want to work with us.

Despite missing World Cup victor Mendy, City were superb against Fulham.

"At that time I was living with my parents and they were getting divorced, it was the right time to move away from Spain and have a new experience", he told Gary Lineker in an interview with the BBC.

Manchester City will be expected to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season when newly-promoted Fulham visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

"I'd like (his son Mateo) to grow up where I'm from".

"It was so hard with him being in hospital for so long".

"I don't know about the salaries or the wages, it's the business of the club", Guardiola said. "The most important thing and the most important issue we have is to help them to grow".

Apart from Manchester City, clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea are strongly challenging for the trophy this season. That's where I was brought up and I really hope he can have the same opportunities as I've had. It will be fascinating to see how this game progresses, as Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic insists the Whites will attempt to play their possession-based style even against the reigning Premier League champions. It depends how I feel physically and mentally. Last season's PFA Young Player of the Year had endured a trying four months in which he was also omitted from Germany's World Cup squad.

It took the champions less than two minutes to break the deadlock through the recalled Leroy Sane, and David Silva added a landmark second midway through a one-sided first half.
