Pep Guardiola has insisted that he is happy in his role as Manchester City manager and hinted that he may stay at the club beyond when his current deal expires at the end of the 2020/2021 season.

They currently trail the table-topping Reds by nine place and this - combined with the fact that his wife and daughter have moved out of Manchester - has fuelled speculation that Guardiola would depart the club at the end of his contract.
