Manchester City brief the press: Pep Guardiola set for contract talks with club eyeing a decade-long stay

Manchester City have briefed the national press with news that they plan to open contract talks with coach Pep Guardiola in the summer.

There are similar versions of the same story from just about every media outlet, with reports that there is a feeling at City that they have found the one – and someone to buck the modern trend of short-term tenures.

In Guardiola, City believe they have a man who can emulate what Sir Alex Ferguson did at neighbours Manchester United and build a long-term dynasty of success. A reign as long as a full decade is being spoken about, with the club delighted by the Catalan and his work.

City intend to make Pep the best-paid coach in the world and keep him around for many years to come.

Here is a collection of tweets and back pages about this big news.
