Guardiola's deal ran until the end of the 2020-21 season, which began on September 12, but he will remain in the Premier League after agreeing to an extension.
The former Barcelona manager had been linked with a return to the Nou Camp, and the new certainty over his contract will now provide some clarity when it comes to transfer incomings and outgoings for next summer.

Guardiola's biggest successes have come domestically at City, where his side won the 2017-18 Premier League title with a record 100 points, and they retained their crown with a 98-point campaign the season after.
