Manchester City want Pep Guardiola to sign a new long-term contract that will allow him to extend his trophy-laden stay at the Etihad Stadium beyond a decade.

The Catalan, who has led an era of dominance since taking the reins in 2016, will be out of contract at the end of next season.

He has yet to make a decision on what happens next and City bosses will support him in whatever he chooses, such is his position at the club.

However, Mail Sport understands they would like to see Guardiola, 53, sign a significant extension that would allow him to add to the 17 major trophies he has lifted since arriving eight years ago.

City will not put pressure on Guardiola and the decision will be his. It is also understood that he recently discussed the situation with at least one key player over dinner to gather his thoughts and input.

If Guardiola decides to extend his contract, the move will most likely ensure he is in charge when a conclusion is reached in the Premier League’s investigation into the club, which has accused him of 115 alleged breaches of financial rules.

On Sunday, Guardiola’s men defeated West Ham to clinch a sixth top-flight title in seven years and claim a historic fourth successive title. On Saturday they face United in a replay of last year’s FA Cup final, which they won 2-1.

Guardiola has previously signed three new deals with City, who declined to comment when approached about the matter.

After City’s victory over West Ham, he appeared to suggest that an exit at the end of next season was the most likely outcome.

“The reality is that I am closer to leaving than staying,” Guardiola said. ‘We have spoken with the club, I feel that now I want to stay. I will stay next season and during the season we will talk. But in eight or nine years we will see.’
