Pep Guardiola extends Manchester City contract

De Bruyne wins Premier League's most assists prize on final day

Manchester City have announced that Pep Guardiola has signed a new contract at the Premier League champions.

Spaniard Guardiola joined City in 2016 on a three-year contract and led them to the Premier League title this year, 19 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United.

"I'm so happy and excited. It's a pleasure to be able to work here", Guardiola told the official City website. It gives you the consistency to arrive at the right moment, the Champions League is so complicated the opponents are so good, all of them.

But he opened his account this time around with Carabao Cup success against Arsenal in February before adding the Premier League, having previously won three such titles in both Spain and Germany.

City also recorded the most wins in an English top-flight season with 32.

City are expected to back their manager once again in the summer transfer market, with Guardiola keen to bring in a top-class replacement for Yaya Toure in midfield.

"I am very much looking forward to the continued impact of his work and to fulfilling our shared ambitions in the coming seasons".

The curtain fell on a peculiar Premier League season on Sunday with the final day of fixtures notable mostly for an unfamiliar absence of tension.

But the way in which the cash is distributed means City actually take home less than rivals Manchester United, who earn £149,767,145 (NZ$294m).

It also ensured Salah claimed the Premier League golden boot, finishing two goals clear of Tottenham's Harry Kane - victor of the award in the previous two seasons - to add a sixth major individual honor to an already overflowing mantlepiece.

"There is more work to do and having Pep committed to Manchester City for the next three seasons gives us the stability to be able to continue our journey to handsome football and success for the club".
