City stars Adam Johnson and Pablo Zabaleta have tied their futures to Roberto Mancini's Blue Revolution by signing new contracts.
Johnson has been linked with admiring Premier League rivals in the media this season but said: "I wouldn't have signed if I didn't see a big future here.
"I'm delighted to sign, I'm just glad it's all sorted out. It was never on my mind when I was playing. You can't let that happen, contracts can take a long time these days.
This club's going places and I want to be up there with them at one of the top clubs in Europe
"I want to become a top player, I want to keep winning things and picking up medals.
"This is such an exciting time to be at the club, things are moving so fast and there's been something new every day in the two years that I've been here.
Fans' favourite Zabaleta, whose previous deal was due to expire next year, said: "I'm in a very good team, and I try to do my best for the club, the team and the fans.
"I didn't think twice, I gave a quick answer because I was so happy to sign."
