Agent: Pellegrini turned down Roma

The agent of Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that he will sit down with his client in 'April or May' and discuss the future.

The Malaga Coach has been linked with the Chelsea job in recent weeks, and his representative has conceded that they are unsure whether he will be in Andalusia come the summer, as well as claiming that they turned down a formal offer from Roma.

“Manuel has a contract with Malaga until 2015,” Jesus Martinez told El Mercurio. “I think in April or May it will become clear what the future holds for him.

“Our first intention is to respect the commitment we have made to Malaga, but there are certain conditions to that.

“Less than 15 days ago we had an offer from Roma, but we declined outright.

“We said no because we are midway through the season.

“Chelsea and other clubs have asked, but nothing else official has been said. Manuel would love to manage in the Premier League, but he'd also like to go to Germany, Italy and other championships.

“There is plenty of time to analyse where he will be next season.”
