With Guardiola locked in, Man City go for Messi reunion

Pep Guardiola Manchester City

Pep Guardiola chose to sign a new two-year contract at Manchester City because there is still "unfinished business".

Guardiola was into the final months of his existing deal, but the 49-year-old has now committed his future to City until 2023.

There has arguably been a feeling that Guardiola's time at City may slowly be coming to an end, particularly as he didn't outstay his welcome at either Barcelona or Bayern Munich.

During that time Guardiola has won two Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup, though City's most desired prize, the Champions League, has so far eluded them.

For Klopp, it means the fascinating rivalry with Guardiola continues, meaning there will be more mouthwatering contests between the Reds and the Citizens in the future. "I have everything I could possibly want to do my job well".

City was heavily linked with Messi before he chose to stay at Barcelona in September despite putting in a transfer request.

Some health-care workers have also been asked to self-isolate, Patterson said during the news conference. The other two cases are in Rankin Inlet, where the community's number of positive cases is now six.

"It's quite easy to convince the players to come because we have to recognise as well that Pep makes the players better so they can see an improvement and that is obvious and that helps to sign the players for Man City". "That impact has been central to our success during his tenure and it is why I am delighted that he shares our view that there is so much more to be achieved both on and off the field", City chairman Khaldoon Mubarak said. But they will be grateful Guardiola has put the uncertainty behind him and can now focus on getting back in the Premier League title race.

City, who travel to Tottenham for tomorrow's Premier League clash, are in 10th place, six points behind leaders Leicester with a game in hand.

"His contract finishes this year [season] and I don't know what will happen in his mind", Guardiola said. It also goes to the stability and creativity at the heart of our football operations.

But the former Barcelona player said Guardiola's presence made his job of signing players much easier, and that would never be truer should the prospect of a reunion with the Catalan tempt Messi to Manchester next summer.

Barcelona legend Rivaldo feels it is a formality that Lionel Messi will be leaving Barcelona at the end of the season, insisting the new board will be unable to tempt him to stay.
