Manchester City first-team star to be rewarded with bumper new long-term contract



| Last Updated:


Manchester City forward Oscar Bobb is set to be handed a new long-term contract after a breakthrough start to the campaign.

Bobb, who was called-up to the Norway international squad for Euro 2024 qualifiers against Cyprus and Spain, has enjoyed an impressive start to the season with the Manchester City first-team squad.

The 20-year-old was promoted to Pep Guardiola’s treble-winning squad for the new campaign, and has featured in five matches for Manchester City to date.

Bobb made his first-team debut against Fulham in the Premier League last month, and was handed his full debut against Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup at St James’ Park.

The Norwegian youngster also replaced Matheus Nunes at Molineux, as Manchester City suffered a shock 2-1 loss to Wolves in September – the first of successive Premier League losses for the first time since 2018.

The 20-year-old’s impressive start to life with Guardiola’s side is set to be rewarded with a major new contract, with the forward set to see his wages triple at the Etihad Stadium.

Bobb is expected to sign a new long-term Manchester City contract until 2029, according to the Daily Star.

The Norwegian’s weekly wage will rise from £12,000 to £36,000 upon agreeing the new deal, with the club having previously rejected numerous approaches for the 20-year-old star.

Cole Palmer’s £42 million move to Chelsea on Deadline Day propelled Bobb into Guardiola’s plans for the new season, with Manchester City currently contending with the long-term absence of Kevin De Bruyne.

Bobb would be the latest player to be handed a new long-term contract; after Rico Lewis, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake penned fresh deals during the summer.

Bobb’s Manchester City and Norway teammate Erling Haaland is also set for contract extension talks with Etihad bosses, following an incredible debut campaign in England.
