Pep Guardiola has won four Premier League titles since joining Manchester City as manager in 2016. He will be out of contract in 2023 and his future at the club remains unresolved.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said the Premier League club knows the right steps to go forward even if he leaves at the end of the current season.

Guardiola, who has guided City to four Premier League titles, four League Cups and the FA Cup, will be out of contract in 2023 and his future at the club remains unresolved.

Asked what City's future would look like if he did not sign a contract extension, Guardiola told reporters, "the club knows exactly what is the next step."

"No one can see the problems (of the future), but I am 100% convinced," the Spaniard added, speaking ahead of City's clash against rival Manchester United.

"They know what the strategy is, what they have to do right now, tomorrow and next season. When the club depends on one person, we have a problem. If the club just depends on Pep, it is because we have not done well.

"I never buy players, it is not my money. It is the club. The club is the most important word. Every decision we make is thinking about the club..."
