MANCHESTER: Pep Guardiola has committed his future to Premier League champions Manchester City by signing a new three-year deal with the club.

The Spaniard had one year left to run on his current deal which he signed upon arrival from Bayern Munich in June 2017.

Guardiola’s new contract will now see him remain at the Etihad until 2021.

Talks between Guardiola and the club regarding an extension have been ongoing for a number of months, with City keen to continue their project under the former Barcelona man.

Following a debut season in English football without a trophy, Guardiola triumphed in the League Cup with City and won the Premier League with a record points haul.

The new deal will see Guardiola’s total reign at City span to five years – one more than his complete tenure at Barcelona.

Guardiola is currently on holiday following a silverware-laden campaign and is due back when his side begin their pre-season work in July.

City travel to the United States to play Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
