Pep Guardiola is keen to extend his stay at the Etihad.
Guardiola has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and three league cups since arriving at the Etihad in 2016.
The Spaniard’s current contract expires in summer 2021 and expressed his desire to stay with the club.
Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font wants Guardiola to return to Barcelona if he is elected as the successor to Josep Bartomeu.
Manchester City legend Shaun Goater believes Guardiola will stay at the club beyond this season.
Former City striker Goater told GentingBet: “Pep is the only one who knows whether he will leave Manchester City – but I like to think that Pep will stay.
“I know he’s not known for being at clubs for five to, eight years, but I really like to think that he has found a home at Manchester City.
“When I say a home, I think a home that will rival his time at Barcelona and the reason I think it can even surpass that is because, his bosses are people that that he’s known for years and worked with for years.
“I think that honesty and closeness will be good for him.
“For him to go to, another club, that’s the family that’s also uprooted. And what I know is that his family are pretty settled and they get along with the hierarchy at the club as well because they’ve all been friends for years.
“So, I don’t think it’s just as easy as Pep saying, he’ll go back to work in Spain Italy or some other country, I think it’s a little bit more complicated than that.
“I think he is happy and he’s found the club that he can really build things and go on to go beyond the Champions League when that happens as well.”
