Pep Guardiola is open to extending his Manchester City stay beyond his current deal, which ends in 2019, according to the Daily Mail.
There has been plenty of talk about the City boss signing a renewal soon, but because of his strong relations with club bosses, including chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Begiristain, the situation is very relaxed with talks expected to take place in the summer.
Pep is focused on winning his first piece of silverware in England, with City still in all four competitions after staying unbeaten so far this season. When the time comes, negotiations are expected to go smoothly over a contract extension, with the very real possibility that his City stint could be longer than either his Barcelona or Bayern Munich tenures.
It is reported by that the 46-year-old is very happy in Manchester, where he enjoys life with his family in a city centre apartment, and he has received unprecedented support from the club beyond what he enjoyed in the tense political climates of Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Pep is especially enthusiastic about the progress of 17-year-old teen sensation Phil Foden, who he hopes to integrate as a first-team regular in the coming years.
Guardiola’s City side are 8 points clear at the top with the Premier League set to resume following the international break, as the Blues face a potentially tricky journey to former champions Leicester on Saturday.
