The official prize money received by each of the 20 English Premier League clubs for the just ended season has been revealed, with second-placed Manchester United receiving more more than any other club.

Pep Guardiola has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at Manchester City until 2021.

I was very happy in Germany, especially in Munich. I suffered, I lived, I experienced it for the first time away at White Hart Lane against physicality, an wonderful team the way they play, high pressing, good build-up.

"We are delighted to announce the extension of Pep's contract through to 2021", club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said in a statement on City's website.

Guardiola masterminded an historic campaign as City became the first side in English football history to achieve 100 points in a top-flight campaign, adding the title to their League Cup triumph.

"In doing so he has embodied the passion and commitment we all have for the club".

Unsurprisingly, City are hot favourites to retain their Premier League title, but their fans can now head into the summer in the knowledge their master is in it for the long haul.

The victorious squad and manager Pep Guardiola were driven through the streets in an open-top bus to celebrate a historic season filled with record-breaking achievements. Jose Mourinho side earns the highest of £149,767,145 from the huge TV deals after having two more matches air on live in the United Kingdom than the Premier League Champions (26).

"They have produced some football that we have never witnessed in the Premier League before", he said.

"There is more work to do and having Pep committed to Manchester City for the next three seasons gives us the stability to be able to continue our journey to attractive football and success for the club".
