'Quadruple his wage': Some City fans are buzzing as club plan to hand 'future captain' new deal

Manchester City are reportedly working on offering Ruben Dias a new bumper contract with the club.

According to the Sun, the Premier League champions want to award the Portuguese international a fresh deal after a brilliant debut season in England.

Dias formed a formidable defensive partnership with John Stones as the duo played a pivotal role in City’s Premier League triumph. The England international also signed a new deal earlier in the month.
