City move fast to replace Mancini with Malaga boss.
Manchester City have agreed a two-year deal with Malaga’s Manuel Pellegrini to replace Roberto Mancini as boss at the Etihad Stadium, reports Daily Star.
Malaga are reportedly willing to waive the final two years of the Chilean’s contract in order for him to leave Spain for City.
The Manchester club are eager to conquer English football again, after seeing rivals Manchester United beat them to the Premier league title this season, just a year after City won the league for the first time in 44 years under Mancini’s guidance.
Another factor in the appointment is Pellegrini’s form in the Champions League, where he guide to the Quarter-Finals only to lose to a last minute goal against finalists Borussia Dortmund. Mancini, meanwhile, failed to take City past the group stage in the last two seasons.
