Pep Guardiola has signed a brand-new contract extension at Manchester City, keeping him at the club till 2025, as confirmed by the official website.
On Tuesday, an official confirmation seemed inevitable, after the Athletic’s report stated that the two-year extension had been agreed.
After months of speculation, the Catalan boss has decided to sign a two-year extension with the side he joined in 2016.
During his time at City, the 51-year-old has a case for building the most dominant team in Premier League history.
If 4 out of the last 5 title wins are not enough of a headline, the fact that Guardiola’s side managed to become ‘Centurions’ and win an unprecedented domestic treble while doing so should be.
After committing his long-term future with the Sky Blues, the club legend discussed why he decided to prolong his stay at the Etihad Stadium.

“I know the next chapter of this club will be amazing for the next decade. It happened over the last 10 years and it will happen in the next 10 years because this club is so stable.”
“From day one, I felt something special being here. I cannot be in a better place. I still have the feeling there is more we can achieve together and that is why I want to stay and continue fighting for trophies.”
