Pep Guardiola revealed that he isn’t thinking about signing a new deal with Manchester City anytime soon but reiterated his wish to get a further extension..
The Spaniard, whose current contract runs until 2023, was tipped to put pen to paper on new terms following Jurgen Klopp’s recent contract extension at Liverpool.
Indeed, 90min realizes that City are pressing to tie Guardiola down to a new offer and had wished to finalise an agreement when this season comes to a close.
Guardiola now revealed that he intends to let his current contract run out before sitting down and evaluating whether signing an extension is the best move for both him and the Premier League.
“If I expand my contract, it is going to be at the conclusion of the following season,” Guardiola stated. “Before it will not happen.” I am here after a long time and I want to see exactly how we think together, me and the staff.
Then he continued: “I would like to stay for at least ten years more, but we need to have time for that, absolutely.”
Guardiola has never concealed his desire to stay at City, recently admitting he hopes to call the Etihad Stadium home’ forever’, though he seems to be in no hurry making that dream a reality.
Guardiola has been with City since 2016, obtaining three Premier League titles and leading the Cityzens towards a likely fourth this season, even though he continues to struggle in the Champions League..
