Why Pep Guardiola has signed new Manchester City deal

Barcelona's Lionel Messi

When the Citizens made it official on Thursday, simultaneously some members of the English media came out with a report stating the English side were "ready to go back" for Lionel Messi in January after a failed attempt in the summer. Having scored 10 goals in the manager's first season, Sterling has since returned 23, 25 and 31 goals, winning two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and three League Cups.

"This looks like [the most open title race], but again it is nine [sic] games I think we have played so still a lot to play".

The presidential election will take place in January, and Mundo adds, from the Spanish club's perspective, the star's departure in the winter market seems like an "unlikely option". We have to try to win games, we know it.

"We already have an unbelievable squad", Begiristain said.

"When you do 100 points in the Premier League - such a hard league - and then in the next one, you have to do 98 to beat an unbelievable team like Liverpool by one (point) you want to see every weekend and every year the same".

Instead, he was forced to stay put, and was unable to depart for City.

"His contract finishes this year [season] and I don't know what will happen in his mind", Guardiola said.


The other two were won by Chelsea by seven points in 2016-17 and Liverpool by 18 last season.

"The decision is not just mine, it's the club's as well".

"With the discussions around - and I take it really serious - what we are talking about with dementia and all the concussion stuff with heading, if people would have talked about that 50 years ago we wouldn't have to discuss it today".

Some Liverpool fans have been reacting to the news that Pep Guardiola has signed a new two-year deal at Manchester City.

Relations between the 33-year-old and the Catalan club have become strained and City and Messi explored a move to the Etihad Stadium in the last window. "I want him to finish his career there", Guardiola told reporters ahead of Saturday's Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

"I have a huge gratitude for what Barcelona has done for me, in the academy, as a football player and after as a manager".
