KYLE WALKER is set to open talks over a new Manchester City contract.
England’s right-back, 29, has three years left on his contract but will be offered an extension to commit himself to the Etihad beyond 2022.

Ex-Tottenham defender Walker — who cost City £50million two years ago — will see his wages soar beyond £150,000-a-week.
Pep Guardiola is close to a £50million swoop for Juventus’ full-back Joao Cancelo, 25.
But Etihad boss Pep wants the Portuguese as cover when Danilo, 27, quits City in search of regular first-team football.
Walker remains firmly in Guardiola’s plans as they aim for a hat-trick of Premier League titles next season.
A significant amount of cash is being put into the City defence this summer.
