The Citizens have intensified their efforts to tie Guardiola down to a new deal.

Manchester City have reportedly reached an agreement with Pep Guardiola to extend his contract.

Rumours around Guardiola’s future started to emerge in English media in early November. Brazil were reportedly considering replacing Tite with the Spaniard after the World Cup.

However, it seems the Premier League champions have successfully extended Guardiola’s contract for two more years.

According to 90min, City are planning to announce their manager’s new deal in the coming days. 

Since arriving at City in 2016, Guardiola has led the Citizens to four Premier League titles. He is yet to win City’s first European title, a goal that might’ve contributed to his decision to stay at the club.

Speaking about his experience of working at Man City, Guardiola explained his love for the club earlier this season.

“I’ve been since the day one, incredibly comfortable, for all the departments in the club and for the hierarchy of course, but especially working with these players,” he said.

“What can I say for the people on the street, in the stadium, how they take care of me and my family. That’s why I’m in the seventh season here. I didn’t expect it when we arrived.

 “It is because I’m comfortable and importantly because we won a lot, and when you win a lot, that helps to continue, because this club right now, I’m sorry for the future, the standards are there, and all of us, we have to fight to maintain it there.”
