How much will Ruben Dias earn after signing a new deal

The publication further reveals that the new deal may see Dias earn as much as his partner John Stones who currently takes home £250,000-per-week.

Dias scored once in 51 appearances across competitions for City in his debut season and his partnership with John Stones conceded 32 goals in the Premier League last campaign.

Meanwhile, manager Pep Guardiola is looking to strengthen his attack with the pursuit of Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who remains his top choice to replace Sergio Aguero after the club's record goalscorer departed the Etihad Stadium in the summer.
