Pellegrini agent met with Chelsea

Manuel Pellegrini's agent has had preliminary discussions with Chelsea about taking charge of the English team next season, according to reports.

The Daily Telegraph has claimed today that the Malaga Coach's representative met with officials from the west London side in Paris last Friday to determine whether the 59-year-old would be interested in going to the Premier League.

The Chilean tactician has become the favourite to succeed Rafael Benitez at Stamford Bridge, despite Jose Mourinho being heavily linked with the job.
