Reports: Pep To Become The Highest Paid Manager In Football

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will reportedly become the highest paid manager in football after agreeing a new deal worth a whopping £20 million a year.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the six best-earning managers, and how much they earn per season, in football right now.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Spaniard has agreed a one-year extension to his current deal and will now be staying at the Etihad Stadium until at least 2020.

Guardiola is believed to have met City owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak in Abu Dhabi last month, and confirmed to the club's bosses he will sign the new contract.

Terms had reportedly already been agreed upon in Manchester, but the 47-year-old wanted to tell the owners in person that he is keen to stay.

All that's left is for Guardiola to officially put pen to paper on the reported record deal, worth £20 million (R343 million) a season.
