Pep Guardiola does not feel that he has enough time remaining on his current Manchester City contract to achieve everything he wants, and plans to extend his stay, Spanish journalist Guillem Balagué reports for Yahoo! Sport.
After this season is over, Pep will have just one year left on his existing deal and considering his first year was largely transitional, the Catalan believes there is still much work to be done at the Etihad.
And the plan is to sit down with City chiefs at the end of the season and add a further year on to his contract, which will mean a minimum of four years of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Balague believes a two-year extension is unlikely simply because it is something Pep has never done. He prefers to assess his situation on an annual basis, and a reign longer than four years in Manchester can’t be ruled out.
Guardiola had a trophyless first year at Manchester City, but it was clear from day one he was trying to instill a new philosophy and the results are showing this season. Guardiola’s City side are unbeaten in all competitions in the current campaign and top both the Premier League and their Champions League group.
