Speaking to mancity.com about his new deal, Mbete said: "This is a very proud moment both for me and my family. I want to express my thanks to everyone at the club for showing their faith in me.
"I have been fortunate to work under some amazing coaches throughout the academy and to be also able to train under Pep Guardiola and the first team coaches is an incredible privilege.
"I feel I am learning and improving all the time and there couldn't be a better club to keep developing.
"Having signed the new contract is a fantastic feeling and now I just want to carry on contributing in the best way I can."
The club's Under-23 team relied on the 18-year-old center defender last season as they won the Premier League 2 championship, keeping eight clean sheets in 19 outings.
