Southampton close on Premier League winner, talks held with former Man City coach


Wholesale changes have become somewhat of a sewing on the South Coast over the past few summers, though that has done little to dampen the mood of the Southampton fans in the Transfer Tavern. 

With almost an unshakeably strong structure in place at St. Mary’s Stadium, even the gutting loss of manager Ronald Koeman has been brushed aside by the club’s resilient fanbase.

Now, some light at the end of the tunnel has finally arrived, following reports from the Daily Echo.

They claim that the club have interviewed former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini over the possibility of him taking over from the recently departed Dutchman.

The Chilean is the man lost in Pep Guardiola’s seismic move to the Etihad Stadium, though is reportedly keen on remaining in England.

Saints are understood to have held talks with the ex-Real Madrid coach, a Premier League winning tactician, to see if he shares their philosophy moving forward.

Undoubtedly a huge name in the game, the 62-year old would arguably be the biggest name manager the club have ever had.

Saints fans, do you want Pellegrini installed? If not, who?
