Malaga: Manuel Pellegrini has told a Spanish television network that he has a verbal agreement with Manchester City to become the Premier League club's next manager.
"Even though until we have signed nothing is done, City has shown a lot of interest in me becoming its next coach," Pellegrini told Canal Sur on Wednesday. "My agent has spoken a lot with them. The deal is not done, but there shouldn't be a problem. I have a verbal agreement with them and I hope that it is honored."
The 59-year-old Chilean coach announced last week he was leaving Spanish club Malaga despite having two seasons left on his contract.
