Pep Guardiola agrees two-year Manchester City extension
Pep Guardiola has agreed on a two-year contract extension with Manchester City, committing his future the club until the summer of 2025 – as exclusively revealed by The Athletic.
Much was made about the Catalan's future, with his present deal set to expire at the end of the current season. It has long been speculated that information on a extension would arise during the World Cup break, with Guardiola visiting City owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak in Abu Dhabi.
Many at the club were reportedly confident in the City manager re-signing with them after his intial signing in the 2016/17 season coincided with the most successful period in the clubs history. City have won four Premier League titles, four League Cups, an FA Cup, and two Community Shields with Guardiola at the helm.
The Blues have broken several records such as most points in a season during the 2017/18 season, which saw City lift the title with a record 100 points – as well as the following 2018/19 season, in which the Club become the first English club to win all four domestic trophies in the same season.
With the current contract, the 51-year-old takes his total time at City to nine years, which is longer than he has ever spent at a single club by a margin of five years.
Guardiola currently maintains the highest win percentage in Premier League history with 74%; he will look to maintain that as well as get his hands on the only trophy he is yet to win in Manchester with the Champions League.
