Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Manchester City are in talks about extending the contract of iconic club captain Vincent Kompany.
The 32-year-old has made 14 appearances in all competitions this season and his presence remains important in the dressing room, but with his deal up in June there have been whispers that his 11-year stay at the Etihad Stadium could come to an end.
However, Guardiola confirmed in the second part of his pre-Burton press conference that he hopes to keep Vinnie and that there are discussions to make that happen.
“We are talking about that – I would like it,” Guardiola said. “He’s our captain, 11 years here, we saw in the last two [league] games the huge quality and personality he has to play. The only problem with Vincent is one: his injury problems.”
Kompany is currently in his 11th season at the club and if all goes well, that could be extended by another one or two years, with City not ready to wave goodbye to a club legend just yet.
