Sky Sports journalist Guillem Balague has claimed that Manchester City will move to extend Pep Guardiola's current contract by a further year at the end of the season.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager put pen to paper on a three-year deal when he pitched up at the Etihad to replace Manuel Pellegrini, and is currently overseeing a side who are sweeping aside all before them.

It's been a hugely impressive start from City this season - winning nine and drawing one of their 10 Premier League games so far and plundering 35 goals.

It's all been rosy in the Champions League too, with three wins out of three all but securing their qualification to the last 16.

The Citizens have got everybody talking with their scintillating brand of football, and that is all down to Guardiola at the helm - and City are now keen for him to commit to further years at the club and will look to partake in discussions next summer according to Balague, via Yahoo Sport.

The Spaniard says his sources tell him that Guardiola doesn't feel that there is enough time in his current deal at present for him to achieve everything that he wants to, and that he will happily sit down to talk about an extension.
