Munoz's current deal with Villarreal does not run out until the end of next season, but the club are negotiating over a deal that will see him stay until 2003.
The coach has promised the Villarreal hierarchy that he wants to stay with the club but is reticent on signing a new contract.
Munoz said: "Now is not the moment for speaking on this subject, in addition I am not worried nor unsettled.
"I have another year left on my contract and the normal thing is to fulfil it."
Lying in fifth place and with a good chance of a European place next season, Villarreal have surprised many observers so far this season.
Possibly the most exciting aspect of the season has been the addition of Martin Palermo (pictured), the Argentinian star adding the goalscoring touch to a hard-working side.
