Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has agreed a one-year extension which will keep him at the Nou Camp until the end of next season.

The 39-year-old is set to sign his contract on 1 July after elections for a new club president have concluded.

Guardiola led Barca to six trophies in 2009, including the Spanish league and the Champions League.

"Guardiola told me he was committed to staying for at least one more season," said Barcelona president Joan Laporta.

The Catalan giants are undefeated in the league this season and top La Liga by five points from rivals Real Madrid.
