Pep Guardiola, fresh from winning the Premier League title, has signed a new Manchester City contract through 2021 to make the strongest long-term commitment of his managerial career.
Completing five years at the Abu Dhabi-owned club would represent Guardiola’s longest tenure in a coaching job.
He spent four years at Barcelona, winning three Spanish league titles and the Champions League twice among 13 honours.
After taking a sabbatical, Guardiola took charge of Bayern Munich and won the Bundesliga in each of his three years in Germany.
Guardiola moved onto Manchester in 2016 and endured criticism through a trophyless first season but he completed his second campaign at City this month as a double winner.
After collecting the League Cup in February, City sealed the Premier League with five games to spare.
