West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting the club to bring in a new manager soon following the dismissal of David Moyes.
The Scotsman was released from his contract following a short six-month spell that saw him do what the club had asked, however, the locals had been vocal about the way their team had played and demanded a change.
According to Chilean radio station Pauta, the Hammers could already have agreed to a deal with their new manager, with Manuel Pellegrini expected to head back to the Premier League. The current Hebei China Fortune boss won the competition back in 2013 with Manchester City and would definitely get the punters in the bar going with excitement.
According to the report, it is expected that he will be named as the new man in charge at the London Stadium on Monday.
The Hammers have been credited with a strong interest about bringing Pellegrini back to the Premier League after he enjoyed success with Manchester City, before his exit to Pep Guardiola, and would certainly be a popular choice.
The locals would have believed the board were being too ambitious with some of the names they were trying to attempt to bring to the London Stadium, however, with the snub from Paulo Fonseca earlier in the week, they will be even more delighted if this deal comes through.
