Manchester City starlet Oscar Bobb is in line for a fresh contract extension with the European champions it has been reported. The Norwegian youngster has impressed so far this season after breaking into the City first team set-up. He also recently picked up his first cap for Norway.
Harry Pratt of the Daily Star reports that Bobb is set for a massive pay rise with his new contract extension. Pratt adds that Bobb is currently earning £12,000 per week but can expect a pay rise of up to £36,000 per week with his new deal. In addition to a pay rise, Pratt reports that Bobb’s new deal will run until June at the end of the 2028/29 season.
Furthermore, Pratt also reports that there are no plans at Manchester City to loan out Bobb during the January transfer window. It’s further reported by Harry Pratt that Pep Guardiola sees the young Norwegian as a better prospect than Cole Palmer. This was a factor in Palmer’s sale to Chelsea reports Pratt.
