England man wants future sorted.
Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry is looking forward to holding talks with the club’s new manager after the players were told that an announcement would be made in two weeks time, Sky Sports reports.
Manuel Pellegini is the man many believe will take over at the helm of the club and Barry is eager to sit down with him as he enters the final year of his current deal.
“It will be a case of the new manager coming in and having a chat with the people upstairs, and discussing it,” said Barry.
“I’m hoping we can have a meeting pretty soon. I would love to stay.
“I’m 32 but I feel pretty fit and I’m on the back of a good season, so hopefully the club will have seen that.
“A one-year extension seems to be the way football has been going, so if that is what is being offered, I will definitely think about accepting it. But we will have to wait and see.
“They have told the players the new manager will be announced in between 10 days and two weeks, and then we will get some phone call or conversation, and it will go from there.”
Barry made 41 appearances across all competitions for City this season.
