The mere notion of Pep Guardiola landing at Manchester City within the next few weeks has the City slickers in the Transfer Tavern in delirious delight.
While the legendary Spanish coach has already brought a fresh sense of optimism to the Etihad, there’s little doubt the goodbye to Manuel Pellegrini will be an emotional one.
The Chilean has been a popular figure at the club and the announcement he would be leaving back in February was widely condemned and is looked upon as one of the major reasons they were unable to challenge for the title.
Now, the 62-year old former Real Madrid coach is reportedly set to move to AC Milan this summer after the Rossoneri missed out on Unai Emery.
That’s according to Gazzetta dello Sport, via the Daily Mirror, who claim the former Villarreal man is closing in on a move to San Siro.
Will Pellegrini looked back upon fondly?
