The Spaniard has eight trophies in two years since replacing Frank Rijkaard as coach of Barcelona and after signing a 1-year deal 12 months ago, Guardiola he is now on the brink of a reported three-year extension.
Barcelona vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu claims that an agreement is in place and all that is left to do is to put pen to paper.
“The coach could soon sign a new deal,” he said.
“We had wanted a longer agreement with Pep Guardiola, but it was only decided for one year.
“Now the coach has opened the door for a longer agreement. This is not a problem because the club is very satisfied with his work.”
