Sheikh Mansour is spearheading a move intending to keep Pep Guardiola at Manchester City past the summer of 2025.

Mansour welcomed Guardiola into his home during the week for a meeting that was pre-planned before the Spaniard’s comment about a potential exit from Manchester City when his contract expires in 2025.

Pep Guardiola At Manchester City

However, the Cityzens are believed to be keen on keeping Pep Guardiola and they are understood to be making necessary efforts to ensure that.

Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has promised to do all that he can to persuade Guardiola to pen a contract extension that will see him be at the Etihad beyond a decade.

The Cityzens are hoping that the prospect of Pep Guardiola taking his team to the expanded Club World Cup in the United States next summer will be too tempting to resist.

The Spaniard’s current deal expires on June 30, 2024, barely two weeks before the Club World Cup is scheduled to take place.

If Guardiola opts to leave Manchester City, then the Etihad side would have to acquire a new manager to prepare for the 2025/26 season.

Reports indicate that Pep Guardiola’s decision will not be influenced by money, however, the Cityzens are prepared to hand him a significant increase on his current £20 million per year salary deal.

Manchester City’s Director Of Football Could Also Leave If Pep Guardiola Exits The Club

There is a feeling oozing around the Manchester-based club that director of football Txiki Begiristain will also exit Manchester City when Guardiola decides to depart the club.

This indicates that the Cityzens will have two big roles to fill, as the impact of the pair has been visible for all to see.

‌Pep Guardiola, 53, made history when Manchester City became the first English side to win four consecutive league titles last season.

The Cityzens also lifted the FIFA Club World Cup and the European Super Cup for the first time in 2023.

During the 2022/23 season, Manchester City secured the treble; winning the UEFA Champions League, League, Premier League, and FA Cup.

Following that triumph, Guardiola admitted that he might find it difficult to motivate himself after achieving bountiful honors in his 8-year spell in Manchester.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have Celtic, AC Milan, Barcelona, and Chelsea to play in their 2024 preseason, and Pep Guardiola in his usual fashion will be expecting the best from his players.

They lost the FA Cup title to city rivals Manchester United last season, whilst also crashing out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals.

The Cityzens will reconvene again for the 2024/25 season aiming to lift several important trophies if possible.

It will be interesting to see where the future of Pep Guardiola is headed alongside the next step in his managerial career.
