Manchester City will reportedly back manager Pep Guardiola with more than £100 million this summer as they seek to build on their Premier League title win.
According to MailOnline’s Jack Gaughan, City believe Guardiola can “rule English football for as long as he wants to be here” and will not be resting on their laurels after Manchester United’s failure to beat West Bromwich Albion assured them of the title on Sunday.
The Sky Blues are said to want to bring in at least two new players this summer and could make as many as four signings to add further quality and depth to their already stacked squad.
City have won the title at a canter this season. Having lost just twice, they’re 16 points ahead of United with five matches remaining.
As Miguel Delaney of the Independent noted, City could yet break several records before the season is over:

With one win, City now back on course for all those records. They need three wins from five to break the 95-point record, five wins from five to break 100 points, and 11 goals to break the 103-goal record.
