Pep Guardiola will agree a new contract at Manchester City this summer to extend his stay at the Etihad Stadium until 2025
Manchester City’s first-team roster is set to undergo big changes during the summer transfer window, after Pep Guardiola’s side’s possible retention of the Premier League championship and participation in the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history.
With Gabriel Jesus allegedly open to joining Arsenal at the end of the season, as well as the lingering uncertainty surrounding Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling’s futures at the Etihad Stadium, City may need to boost their frontline to contend on all fronts again next season.
Since Pep’s arrival in Manchester in 2016, the Catalan manager has won eight major domestic trophies, including three Premier League crowns.
City are in contention to defend their Premier League title and possibly win their first-ever Champions League title next month, and Guardiola is committed to the long haul.
According to sources, conversations with Guardiola are underway about extending his current contract, which ends at the end of next season.
Negotiations to recruit Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland are also said to be at the forefront of Guardiola’s personal discussions, with a deal for the Norwegian goal machine drawing closer.
Champions League success is not expected to be a deal breaker in retaining Guardiola at City, as the former Barcelona manager aims to follow in the footsteps of his rival Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and sign a new contract in 2022.
