Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola agreed in principle a new one-year contract extension during the club’s warm-weather training break in Abu Dhabi last month, Simon Mullock of the Sunday Mirror reports.
There have been various stories of Pep being poised to renew in recent months, including some which stated that he would extend until 2021, but this latest report claims that he will add one-year on to his current deal, which means a minimum of two more campaigns in charge at the Etihad.
Guardiola is said to have met with Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarek in Abu Dhabi last month and agreed a new deal that will see him become the world’s highest-paid manager on £20million-a-year.
The Catalan and his family are settled in Manchester and enjoying life, and on the pitch after a difficult debut campaign, his team are set to clinch the Premier League title, despite a disappointing 2-3 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday. In addition to the Carabao Cup, it will mean a domestic double for Pep and his players.
The terms of Guardiola’s new deal have been agreed and now he just has to put pen to paper in order to formalise it and extend his stay at Man City.
