City want Guardiola to stay for as long as possible (Picture: Getty)Pep Guardiola has no intention of leaving Manchester City and is reportedly open to staying at the club for another four years.
Reports last week claimed Guardiola was in talks to join Juventus and was open to the idea of quitting City to take on the challenge in Italy.
Guardiola dismissed those claims over the weekend as City beat Watford to go a point clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.
The Telegraph claim Guardiola has confided in friends he wants to remain in Manchester for another four years.
Guardiola’s current deal runs until 2021, but is considering asking City to extend that contract by another two years.
When reports of a shock switch to Juventus were put to Guardiola, the Spaniard insisted those claims were baseless.
‘I have two more years here [at City] and I’m not going anywhere unless they sack me,’ Guardiola said.
‘I hope to be here another two years and maybe another. It is impossible for me to move, unless I get sacked. I am not going to Juventus for the next two seasons.’
Guardiola is aiming to become the first City boss to retain a Premier League title this season, but is facing serious competition from Liverpool.
Guardiola is happy at City (Picture: Getty)City’s owners would like Guardiola to stay at the club for another ten years and create a dynasty in Manchester, not unlike the one Sir Alex Ferguson produced at United in his 26 years in charge at Old Trafford.
Guardiola has so far shown a pattern of short stays at clubs, spending four years as Barcelona head coach before three years at the helm of Bayern Munich.
