Guardiola: No new contract talks yet

Pep Guardiola will delay the discussion of a new contract at City until later in the season.

The Catalan has been at City since 2016 and is entering his seventh campaign at the Etihad Stadium.

While his current deal ends next summer, Guardiola is not yet thinking about signing an extension. Instead, he is focused on preparing his squad for the defence of our Premier League title.

Speaking to the media ahead of this weekend's trip to West Ham United, the manager did give an indication as to when he will open discussions on his future with the Club.

"We have spoke with the Club - in middle or the end we will talk again and decide what is best," he said.

"I have said many times, I will extend, if they want it. I would like to stay longer, but at the same time I have to be sure. It is not the second season, third season - it’s many years already.

"I have to see how the players behave, I don’t want to be a problem. Sometimes if you extend and force things, it is not good.

"You have to be relaxed. This kind of situation will happen in a natural way. If you force it, it is not going well. We will see what happens during the season, how we feel and the best decision for the club is going to be taken."
