Pellegrini'agent holds talks with Man City

Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City's director of football, has met the agent of Manuel Pellegrini, the Mlaga coach who is a favoured option to replace Roberto Mancini should the Italian leave the club.

Begiristain had lunch with Jesœs Mart’nez in Madrid on Monday, but it is understood that, as the agent also represents numerous players, the meeting may have been of a more general nature.

Mancini's future at City is the balance, with the hierarchy waiting for the end of the season to assess his long-term future at the club. With the FA Cup final at Wembley on 11 May against Wigan Athletic to come, Mancini could claim the third major trophy of his three full seasons at City to follow last season's Premier League title and the Cup triumph in 2011.
