Manchester City chiefs expect manager Pep Guardiola to make a decision on his contract over the coming weeks.
City have broken up for the World Cup on the back of defeat at home to Brentford.
The Daily Mail says with his City future uncertain and his current contract expiring this summer, many inside the club view this month as the critical period in which he will make up his mind.
The Catalan is set to jet off to Abu Dhabi, where he will hold meetings with City’s top brass to inform them of his future plans.
He will keep one eye on Qatar, but Guardiola will use the time to relax with family and be clear about his next move.
