MANCHESTER CITY will QUINTUPLE Phil Foden's salary to £150,000 a week despite his Iceland hotel shame, according to reports.
The 20-year-old England international was sent home in disgrace by Gareth Southgate, alongside Manchester United's Mason Greenwood, for breaking Covid-19 rules by hooking up with local girls in their hotel.
While on Nations League duty, Foden 'left the hotel bedroom VERY happy' according to Icelandic stunner Lara Clausen and now he will have more to smile about thanks to a huge pay rise.
90min.com reports Foden will collect FIVE times his current £30,000 a week wages thanks to a bumper new contract.
He signed his last deal in 2018 and it runs until 2024.

But he is set to be rewarded for his on-field excellence having progressed from the Citizens' academy.
It is thought Foden, who has a child with long-term partner Rebecca Cooke, could put pen to paper in the coming weeks.
City boss Pep Guardiola has gradually made Foden a first-team mainstay since handing him his Premier League debut as a 17-year-old in December 2017.
Foden issued a grovelling apology after his antics in Iceland.
And the youngster seemingly has managed to put his off-field scrapes behind him after hitting the ground running in the 2020-21 campaign.
Guardiola has picked Foden in the starting XI in all three of City's opening games, including Sunday's match against Leicester at the Etihad.
He bagged goals against both Wolves in the league and Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup to make it two from two and ensure he got off to a flyer.
Foden has shown his worth to Etihad bosses having made 76 senior appearances with a return of 17 goals and 13 assists.
