Pep Guardiola is planning to extend his stay at the Etihad.
Time is running out on his current deal and Goal.com understands a new contract will only be for 12 months.
Guardiola is already in the fifth season with City which is his longest relationship with any club in management. He spent four years at Barcelona and then three with Bayern Munich.
The Spaniard has stated that he is happy with life at Manchester and would not mind keeping his job for the upcoming seasons.
“I’m incredibly happy here, delighted to be in Manchester and hopefully I can do a good job this season to stay longer,” Guardiola said at the end of October.
City finished 18 points behind last year’s winners, Liverpool and only with a Carabao Cup to show for. Guardiola understands that he has no wish of replicating Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger’s feat in England but he would like to take revenge.
He also cleared out doubts over his future and whether it is affecting the team’s performance on the pitch.
“When they are on the pitch they do absolutely everything with one manager or another because they are incredibly professional and they want to do well,” he said. “Nothing changes. Absolutely nothing.”
