The 49-year-old Pep Guardiola has chosen not to pledge his future to Manchester City as his contract expires in 2021 amid club pushing for an extension.
Since his arrival, Pep Guardiola has inspired City to incredible heights with four years of being in charge. This is the longest time the Spaniard has served in a club in his managerial career.
The manager’s contract at City expires in 2021 and Pep has chosen not to pledge his future at the club. However, City will do everything they can to keep the 49-year-old who will revamp the squad over the coming months.
“I am incredibly satisfied to be in this club and to try to do our best”. Said Pep.
“But I don’t want to think too far ahead. Now is not the time. I just think about today. I want the players to recover because the last 15-20 minutes were so demanding 10 against 11. We have a tough game against Newcastle and that’s what I have to be focused on”.
David Silva and Leroy Sane are leaving and there are decisions to be made on John Stones and Joao Cancelo. The most crucial factor lies on City’s appeal over a two-year ban from Europe that is due next month.
Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva will also consider moving if the court of Arbitration for Sport does not overturn Uefa’s ruling.
Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho have a year left on their deals and a ban would wreck their chances of ever lifting the Champions League at City.
