Pep Guardiola Set To Extend Deal With Man City - Report

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is expected to sign at least a one-year contract extension at the end of the season with the English football club, according to UK newspaper The Telegraph.
Guardiola is out of contract at the end of next season but there is optimism he will agree to an extension that ties him to the Etihad Stadium until at least June, 2020.

City's hierarchy were already in private talks about wanting to keep Guardiola for as long as a decade before Sunday's coronation and would like him to sign a much longer-term deal.

They have talked previously about the freedom Guardiola has been given in Manchester and how the job is far removed from the acute political pressure that came with managing former clubs Barcelona, where the 47-year-old spent four years as coach before taking a 12-month sabbatical, and, in many ways Bayern Munich, where he was in charge for three years.

Guardiola is determined to finish the final five games of the season with a flourish as he bids to smash the record English Premier League points haul of 95, set by Chelsea in 2004-05, and in doing so become the first side to reach the 100-point barrier.
