Malaga’s director general Vicente Casado believes the club’s improving finances will be enough to convince boss Manuel Pellegrini to stay.

Reports had suggested that Pellegrini, who led the Spanish club to the quarter-finals of this year’s UEFA Champions League, had met with Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain with a view to a switch to the Etihad Stadium.

However Casado was eager to state that the Argentine is content at La Rosaleda and is hopeful that the former Villarreal and Real Madrid manager will remain with the club.
“The only thing we know is that Manuel is happy at Malaga, and it is known that everyone appreciates him,” Casado said.
Pellegrini has made no secret of his desire to see out his contract, which expires in 2015, however the 59-year-old is reportedly keen for the ownership to show more commitment. Casado feels Malaga can satisfy those demands, and insisted the club will no longer have to sell leading players in order to keep their finances healthy.
He added: “We will continue to have the budget of a club in mid-table towards the top.”
Malaga occupy a Europa League qualification spot in La Liga, and Casado that their UEFA imposed European competition will be overturned at the appeal hearing in June.
“In Malaga we are already credible, in Spain too,” he continued. “We hope that internationally they believe in this project.”
