thumbnail Hello,

The Spanish coach believes that the time has finally come for him to discuss his contract situation with the club, with a decision due to be made shortly

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has revealed that he plans to discuss his future at the club in the next few days.

The 41-year-old's contract is due to expire at the end of the season, and he has been cryptic in the past when asked whether he plans to sign an extension to remain at Camp Nou.

"In the next few days we will decide if I stay or not," he told reporters after Tuesday's 2-2 draw against Chelsea in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals, which eliminated the Catalans from the competition 3-2 on aggregate.
9/2 Pep Guardiola is 9/2 to be the next permanent manager of Manchester United with Paddy Power.

"I will speak with my assistant [Tito Vilanova] and president Sandro Rosell and then we will decide what is best for the club.

"We will talk about everything, about the club's situation, and we will make a decision because evidently now is the time."

Guardiola has led Barcelona to 13 titles since he took charge of the team in 2008, including three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies.
