Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that he will be leaving Malaga as coach at the end of the season.
The Chilean, who took the Costa del Sol outfit to the quarter-finals of their debut campaign in the Champions League this year, has been heavily linked with replacing the sacked Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.
Pellegrini has now seemingly paved the way for that move to the Premier League runners-up by confirming to reporters that he will be leaving Malaga in the summer.
