Man City offer Pep Guardiola a new deal as Cityzens look to extend their dynasty

Manchester City are eager to keep Pep Guardiola beyond his current contract, which expires in 2025, according to the Daily Mail.

The highly-respected manager has overseen eight years of unprecedented success at the Etihad Stadium, and City are keen on extending his reign even further.

There are rumours that the former Barcelona manager is looking to leave the Cityzens after next season, but the club wants him to stay put.

The Catalan has transformed City’s fortunes since taking charge in 2016. His tactical brilliance has brought 17 major trophies to the club, including a historic four consecutive Premier League titles secured on Sunday with a win over West Ham United.

Despite Guardiola’s immense influence, City understand the decision ultimately rests with him. The club will respect whatever choice he makes. 

However, reports suggest City are pushing for an extension that will allow Guardiola to further enhance his already legendary legacy at the club.

Guardiola’s leadership is seen as crucial as City navigate the ongoing Premier League investigation into their breaching of Profit & Sustainability Rules. An extension will likely ensure his presence when the investigation concludes.

The contrasting situations at City and their rivals Manchester United paint a stark picture ahead of their FA Cup final clash this weekend. 

City are striving for stability and continuity with Guardiola, while United face turmoil. 

The Red Devils are reportedly set to part ways with manager Erik ten Hag, regardless of the FA Cup final outcome.

They have identified Kieran McKenna, whose managerial experience consists of promotions in the lower division, as a potential replacement.

City’s desire to extend Guardiola’s reign shows their ambition to maintain their position as a dominant force in English football. 

Their approach is in stark contrast to the uncertainty engulfing United, highlighting the contrasting paths the two Manchester giants are currently on.
