SunSport revealed back in December that City chiefs will sit down with the Spaniard at the end of the season about negotiating a new contract.

The Premier League leaders are optimistic that Guardiola will put pen to paper on a new deal, and are hopeful he will create a dynasty at the club.

But according to the Mirror, PSG are confident of luring the former Barcelona boss to Ligue 1.

They state the French club are prepared to wait in order to get their man, and are already planning for life after Unai Emery.

And with the former Roma midfielder spending no more than four seasons managing a club, PSG remain upbeat that a deal can be reached.

He rejected the opportunity to extend his stay at both Barca and Bayern Munich, citing him ambition for new challenges.
