West Ham interested in Pellegrini


West Ham want to speak to former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini about their managerial vacancy.

There are reports in his native Chile that Pellegrini has signed a contract – but a deal is not yet done.

The 64-year-old, who manages Chinese Super League side China Fortune, has been identified as a possible replacement for David Moyes, whose contract has not been renewed.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez also remains of interest to West Ham.

The Spaniard has 12 months remaining on his Newcastle contract and there is an acknowledgement from West Ham that getting Benitez out of St James’ Park is difficult.

Pellegrini managed Manchester City between 2013 and 2016 and won the Premier League title in his first season in charge.

The former Real Madrid manager also guided City to the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2016, the only time the club has reached that stage in their history.
