Manchester City outgoing manager Manuel Pellegrini is reportedly being linked as a potential replacement for Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink, reports Daily Star.
The Chilean is set to leave the Etihad at the end of the current campaign following confirmation that the City will be appointing Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola this summer.
Whereas, Hiddink is expected to leave the west London club as the Blues have been linked with various candidates to fill the void space.
Italy boss Antonio Conte was being tipped for the job at Stamford Bridge after reports emerged that the former Juventus manager has already agreed a deal with the reigning Premier League champions in principle to join the club.
Now, it is believed that the Blues’ technical director Michael Emenalo is planning a move for Pellegrini given his vast experience in the English football.
Pellegrini, 62, led the Citizens to the league title as well as the league cup.
