Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola will sign a new contract at the Nou Camp on Wednesday, the Spanish champions have confirmed.
Guardiola, 39, reached a verbal agreement with the club in January to stay on for at least one more season and will now formalise the deal after his previous contract expired on June 30.
Barcelona announced the new agreement in a statement on their official website which read: "The expected announcement of Guardiola's continued presence on the bench is a reality.''
Guardiola prefers to sign short contracts but the club are keen to offer their coach a long-term deal and it remains to be seen what terms have been agreed.
One of Europe's most successful young managers, Guardiola has won seven trophies in his two seasons at the Nou Camp having been promoted after a successful campaign with Barca's reserve team.
