Pep Guardiola rules out immediate Man City contract extension

Guardiola is set to at least wait till the end of the next season.

Pep Guardiola has stated that he is not interested in signing a new deal with Manchester City shortly, but has expressed his willingness to extend his contract in the future. The Spaniard’s current contract runs until 2023, and he had been expected to sign a new agreement following Jurgen Klopp’s extension at Liverpool.

The City has been pressing for Guardiola to sign a new contract and had wanted to reach an agreement before the end of the current season. Guardiola, on the other hand, has disclosed that he intends to wait until his current contract expires before deciding whether signing an extension is the best option for both himself and the Premier League leaders.

While speaking to Sky Sports, Guardiola stated if he does extend his contract, it will be at the end of next season and it is not going to happen before that. He needs to see that he and the team feel together. He would like to stay for another 10 years but he needs time to take the decision.

Guardiola has made no secret of his desire to stay at City, recently admitting that he hopes to call the Etihad Stadium home ‘forever,’ but he does not appear to be in any hurry to make that ambition a reality. The boss of the Premier League winners has been with the club since 2016 and has clinched three PL titles.
