Pep Guardiola signs new two-year contract at Manchester City. The Catalan boss moved to end the speculation during the international break.
Pep Guardiola has committed his future to Manchester City by signing a two-year contract extension, warning he still has ‘unfinished business’.
Mail Online revealed on Thursday lunchtime that Guardiola had agreed fresh terms, putting an end to the threat of his situation overshadowing City’s season.
Guardiola, who earns more than £15million a year, went into the international break adamant about reaching a resolution and came to the conclusion that he would remain at the Etihad.
City were desperate for the 49-year-old to continue and had given him the time needed to make a decision with his family. That the answer has come in November is a significant fillip for planning purposes.
Talks held this week with three key boardroom figures —Khaldoon Al Mubarak, Txiki Begiristain and Ferran Soriano — ended with Guardiola signing a deal until 2023.
Finishing that full term would represent seven years in charge — considerably longer than had been expected when he arrived from Bayern Munich in 2016.
