Man City Set To Make Guardiola World’s Highest-Paid Manager

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, is to sign a one-year extension to his contract worth £20million.

The deal would make him the world’s best paid manager and keep him at The Etihad until 2020.

Guardiola’s current contract expires next summer, but he said to be keen to stay and build on this impressive season, with City close to winning the Premier League.

According to the Mirror, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager held a meeting with City owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak in Abu Dhabi last month.

City were in the Middle East for four days of warm weather training and it was there where he reportedly agreed to extend his stay.

Guardiola took charge of City in the summer of 2016.
