The 19-year-old, who hails from Salford and joined the City Academy at the age of 11, has agreed a three-year extension, agreeing to a deal which keeps him at the Etihad Stadium until the summer of 2026.

McAtee told his club’s website: “This is a really proud moment in my career, and I am so grateful to the Club for showing their faith in me.

“I’ve been here since I was 11 and I can’t thank everyone enough for everything they have done for me.

“I have worked with some brilliant coaches in the Academy, who have put me in a position to be able to train and play with Pep Guardiola and the first team, which is all I’ve ever wanted to do.

“I’ve been really pleased with my progress this season and I am sure I am in the right place to keep improving, so it feels amazing to know I will be a Manchester City player for another four years.”
