Guardiola intervened to help Sterling stay at City
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola played a crucial role in securing Raheem Sterling's new contract, the Mirror reports.
It says City had been reluctant to make England international Sterling one of their top earners on £300,000 a week until Guardiola stepped in.
City "were refusing to pay up" — but that changed when he "urged them to make the deal happen because the 23-year-old was a player he could not afford to lose."
