It is a well known fact that Pep Guardiola is known to have short stints at his clubs.
However, Manchester City have other ideas, as they are hoping to make Pep Guardiola the highest paid manager, so that he can change that trend and carry on at City and build a legacy of his own.
At Barcelona, he built one of the best teams to have ever graced the Beautiful Game, and that was in his first season as manager of the Catalan outfit. Thereafter, he went onto manage the club he loved so much, for just another four years.

He then moved on to Bayern Munich, where he could not replicate the European success he previously achieved. However, he enjoyed enormous domestic success in Germany, but yet again, only stayed put for three seasons there.
When he took charge of Manchester City at the beginning of the 2016-17 season, a lot of fans expected him to replicate the tradition he has set with his previous clubs, but City went trophyless in his first season in charge.
With only 18 months left on his contract, City plan to offer to him a huge deal next summer itself. According to the Mirror, City are preparing to offer a £20 million-a-year worth four-year deal, which could make him the highest paid manager in the world.
With the Citizens running away in the Premier League title race this season, Times reported that it is highly expected of Pep to accept the deal and create a dynasty like Sir Alex did at United.
Currently, the Chinese national football team manager Marcello Lippi is the highest earning manager in the world with £18 million-per-year, followed by Guardiola, who earns £15.3 million-a-year.
Considering the kind of Catalan politics he faced at Barcelona, and the internal politics at Bayern, one would expect Pep to carry on at City given the freedom he gets as their manager.
