Pep Guardiola has put an end to speculation over his Manchester City future after signing a new two-year contract extension on Thursday.

The 49-year-old was due to be out of contract at the end of this season and it had been suggested the Spaniard might be ready to leave City.

But Guardiola old has now agreed to stay at the Etihad Stadium until at least 2023.

“Manchester City are pleased to announce that Pep Guardiola has signed a new two-year deal with the club,” a statement on City’s website said.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola is midway through his fifth campaign with the Premier League and his new deal will extend what is already his longest stay at any club.
