The players will be presented on stage at 7pm with the event scheduled to finish at around 7.30pm.

City retained their Premier League title with a 4-1 victory at Brighton on Sunday, meaning they finished a point ahead of Liverpool following a nip and tuck title race.

They became the first team to successfully defend their Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United side in 2009.

Guardiola’s side have also won the Carabao Cup this season and have the opportunity to complete an unprecedented domestic Treble when they play Watford in the FA Cup final this Saturday.

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: ‘Huge congratulations to Manchester City on a remarkable season.

‘Some things don’t change with City – fans like me are still on a knife edge – but that win shows a brilliant team at their absolute best. The parade next week will be a fitting end to a nail biting campaign.

‘City fan or not, all Mancunians can be proud of the achievement that has brought the Premier League title back to Manchester for a second successive year – a feat rarely achieved outside of this city.

‘Manchester is a name at the very top of world football and the city’s success spreads our name across the globe, helping to attract investment and supports the continued economic growth of our city.’
