Superdeporte is reporting that Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is almost certain to be appointed Valencia head coach for the 2016/2017 season.
The Chilean will become a free agent in the summer as Pep Guardiola has agreed to take over as Man City boss, and it appears he will be returning to Spanish La Liga.
Namely, having been disappointed with Gary Neville’s start at Mestalla, Valencia chiefs have approached Pellegrini, offering him the job ahead of the new season.
According to Superdeporte, the Chilean has told his friends that he will probably accept the proposal from Mestalla.
Manuel Pellegrini enjoyed a great deal of success with Villarreal, achieving a top 3 finish in La Liga before narrowly missing out on the Champions League final.
He has also coached Real Madrid and Malaga in Spain, before moving to Etihad Stadium in June 2013, signing a three-year contract that will expire at the end of the season.
