Manchester City are poised to make Pep Guardiola the world’s best-paid manager, according to the Mirror.
The Premier League champions-elect, who threw away a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at home to arch rivals Manchester United on Saturday evening, have offered their boss a new lucrative contract extension until 2020.
Guardiola, who arrived at the Etihad Stadium back in the summer of 2016 after leaving Bundesliga champions FC Bayern Munich, is destined to lift the 2017-18 Premier League title later this month, with his Citizens side 13 points clear of second placed United, with only six fixtures remaining of the season.
The report claims the 47-year-old is set to become the world’s best-paid boss by agreeing a new £20m-a-year deal at the club, which equates to around a whopping £385,000-a-week.
Guardiola, who has just over 12 months remaining on his current deal, has already guided his side to EFL Cup triumph, after defeating Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley Stadium in February’s final.
However, on Tuesday night, City will be looking to pull off a memorable comeback of their own, as they look to overturn their 3-0 first leg defeat to the hands of Liverpool in a bid to reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
