Manchester City are hopeful that manager Pep Guardiola will sign a new contract before the end of the year.
The 51-year-old has spent the last six-and-a-half years in charge of the Citizens, but his current contract is due to expire at the end of the season.
Guardiola has won 11 trophies during his time at the Etihad, including four Premier League titles in the last five seasons, and the Spaniard is bidding to get his hands on a fifth English top-flight crown this term.
Talks between Guardiola and Man City over a new contract are believed to have been taking place for some time, and 90min claims that both parties have a ‘broad agreement’ which would see the Citizens boss commit his future to the club until June 2025.
The report adds that City remain calm about Guardiola’s contract situation and they are ‘very confident ‘ that he will put pen to paper on fresh terms before the end of the year.
Guardiola is currently enjoying his longest spell as a manager at the same club, with the 2022-23 campaign his seventh in charge at Man City.
The Catalan boss spent four years in charge of Barcelona between 2008 and 2012 before joining German giants Bayern Munich, where he took the reins for three years between 2013 and 2016.
Guardiola is believed to have aspirations to return to USA at some stage of his coaching career; the Spaniard spent a year-long sabbatical in New York before taking charge of Bayern Munich.
Should Guardiola decide to call time on his reign at the Etihad, Man City have allegedly identified Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta and Bayern Munich’s Julian Nagelsmann as potential successors.
