Manchester City plan to offer Pep Guardiola a new long-term contract and will discuss a new deal in the summer, according to various reports in the UK.

The Telegraph report that City want to “build a Sir Alex Ferguson style dynasty at the Etihad Stadium” with the Spaniard currently halfway through his current deal.

There is a suggestion the club want him to stay for 10 years and lead the club to “multiple domestic and European titles.”

Meanwhile, the Manchester Evening News report that Guardiola’s camp and City are both hoping he will “make City his longest stay.”

They also talk about life after Guardiola and say that the club want to bring young coaches through, with Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta named as potential successors.

The brief certainly seems to be that City are keen for Pep to commit his long-term future to the club, after a simply stunning start to the season.

Pep’s current contract expires in the summer of 2019, but let’s hope a deal can be done and we can enjoy him for many more years to come.
