The Catalan has signed a two-year contract extension after leading the Blues to a record-breaking Premier League title victory

Pep Guardiola has signed a two-year contract extension at Manchester City, the Premier League champions have confirmed.

Guardiola is two years into the three-year deal he penned in the summer of 2016, but has now pledged his future to City until the summer of 2021.

The 47-year-old’s new deal marks a coup for the Blues, who are keen to keep hold of their coach for as long as possible.

During his time at Barcelona Guardiola only signed one-year extensions, and even said at one point that if he could sign six-month deals he would do so. At Bayern Munich he honoured his three-year contract before moving to the Premier League.

City have long wanted to tie Guardiola down to a longer deal and their resolve has only increased as the team’s impressive season progressed.

Initial talks had taken place not long into last season, but the decision was made to push back formal negotiations until the summer as it had quickly become obvious that all parties were keen to renew.

City had established a lead at the top of the Premier League table at that time and neither Guardiola nor the club wanted any distractions.

However, by early spring it became clear that City would win the title and Guardiola’s agent, Josep Maria Orobitg, began ironing out the terms of an extension with the City hierarchy.
