Russian club eyeing exciting swoop for Man City favourite

PellegriniOur resident Manchester City will be happy to hear that their current manager will be able to find a job when he departs this summer, following the imminent arrival of Pep Guardiola, with The Sun claiming that Zenit St Petersburg are heavily interested.

The report states that the Chilean coach is the number 1 choice for the Russian outfit, but word around the Tavern suggests that Pellegrini would prefer to stay in England or return to Spain.

The 62-year old is said to have also attracted the interests of relegation-battling Newcastle.

Having seen rumours linking him with Premier League rivals Chelsea, our City punters have been relieved to see that Pellegrini, who has already managed several Spanish outfits including Real Madrid, Villarreal and Malaga, has also been linked with replacing Gary Neville at Valencia.

Our landlord believes that, despite his recent criticisms, City fans would prefer to see him leave England than stay with another English side.

Manchester City fans, where do you think Pellegrini would fit in best? Let us know in the comments below!
