Man City open new contract talks with Guardiola

Manchester City have opened new contract talks with manager Pep Guardiola.

The Telegraph says the Spaniard only has 10 months left on his contract and talks about extending his deal beyond June 2021 have already begun.

City feel it would be wrong to look beyond a manager of Guardiola's calibre despite some reports saying they are already lining up former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as his replacement if he doesn't sign a new deal.

However, that does not look likely at present with Guardiola immersed in City's plans to re-shape the squad amid their quest to finally win the Champions League.

The 49-year-old has never made it a secret that he has ambitions beyond City with Juventus a club often linked to him while he himself has expressed a desire to take a nation to a major finals.
