Guardiola Decides On Man City Future

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed his decision regarding his future at the Etihad Stadium.

Since his arrival in the blue half of Manchester in 2016, the Spaniard has dominated the Premier League.

He has won the English top flight on three different occasions while capturing four League Cups and an FA Cup to boot, and while the City faithful would love for the 51-year-old to stay on board beyond June 2023, which is when his current deal expires, he is in no rush to commit his long-term future with the reigning champions.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Barcelona midfielder said: "If I extend the contract, it will be at the end of next season. Before is not going to happen.

"It's been many years and I have to see how the team and ourselves are together.

"I would stay 10 more years, but we have to take time for that. It's not time this season, or during the season.

"The reason why I came here to England is already done. What we wanted to do, we have, we did it."

Guardiola's contract status has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks after Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp signed an extension taking his stay at Anfield to June 2026.

The Spaniard had recently revealed, however, that he does not feel pressured to make a decision because of his German counterpart.

"Everyone has their own situation and if we decide to stay longer it's because we all decide together, not because of my colleague staying," Guardiola said prior to his side's 4-0 victory over Leeds United in late April.

"All my career, 14 or 15 years as a manager, I've had rivals. I think it's really good for the Premier League that Jurgen's signed. He decided and the club decided to stick together.

"I'm more concerned about the last month we have ahead of us. After that, we have time. I have the feeling that one year is a long time. I'm enjoying this part of the season and after that we have time."

Although City have recently suffered an agonising defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, Guardiola is on the cusp of winning his fourth Premier League title, which would make him the second-most successful manager in the competition's history, ahead of the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho.

Here are the 10 players "confirmed" to be leaving their respective clubs at the end of the 2021/22 campaign:
