Manchester City are ready to give teenager Jadon Sancho a new improved to fend off reported interest from their Premier League rivals.

The 17-year-old, who joined Manchester City from Watford in 2015 for £500,000, is believed to have attracted the interest of both Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Sun now claims that City are set to tie Sancho down to a new three-year deal worth in the excess of £30,000-a-week.

Sancho, who primarily operates on the left wing but can be deployed on the opposite flank, is said to be one the most talented academy prospects at Manchester City but has yet to make a first-team appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side.

The youngster has represented England at Under-16 and Under-17 level and is currently playing for Manchester City’s Under 18 side where he has made a total of 17 appearances and found the back of the net seven times so far this season.
