City have also made a Champions League final under Guardiola, but they lost the 2021 all-English affair 1-0 in Porto to Chelsea.

And they’ll have until 2025 to win their first European crown under the iconic manager, as according to The Athletic, City have reached an agreement with Guardiola to extend his stay for another two years.

The deal will be structured as an initial one-year deal, with both the club and manager holding an option for a further season. 

That means either side can choose to part sooner if they wanted.

The structure is the same as the contract he signed in November 2020.

His existing contract at the Etihad was set to expire at the end of this season.

Guardiola, 51, said earlier this month that he considered it unlikely he will find a better club to manage than Manchester City.

He said: “(Would I) stay in another place for seven years? No, I don’t think so. It is difficult to find what I have here as a manager.

“To be a manager for a long time you need to be so supported. The results help a lot, that is undeniable. In this world they sack you, they fire you, we know that.

“But, at big clubs, part of the success of the manager is the chairman, the sporting director especially, the CEOs and all the people here.

“It goes to the media, fans and players. There is stability. This is why I think only in few clubs this can happen.”

City are currently trailing Arsenal by five points in the Prem after 14 games played.

Arsenal have lost just one game this season with the defeat coming against Manchester United.
