The Telegraph is reporting that the newly crowned Premier League Champions are set to offer Guardiola a new one-year contract extension after a highly successful domestic campaign which saw his side win the League Cup and Premier League crown.

The city hierarchy has been working on a new deal for a few months now with the Spanish manager set to put ink on a deal before the season is over.

With the Premier League title now tied up and nothing else to play for many are wondering if Pepe will start resting players for the remaining five league games of the season. Many pundits believe he will play his full strength team in a bid to set a record and smash the 100 point barrier for the first time in Premier League history.

With the title now wrapped up, plans are already underway on next seasons defence of the Premier League and another bid to try and win the Champions League. Rumours are circulating that the City boss will have up to £200m to spend over the summer with players such as Isco and Thiago Alcantara recently being linked with moves to the Etihad.

Guardiola took over at Manchester City in 2016 after leaving Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. History has shown the Catalan manager has not stayed on in any managerial role for more than four-years. If he is to sign the one-year extension then expect him to move on to his next project or take another short break from football.
