Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is being linked as a possible replacement for interim Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink, Daily Star reports.
The 62-year-old is set to leave the Etihad at the end of the season following confirmation that the club will be appointing current Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola in the summer.
Hiddink is expected to leave Stamford Bridge as the Blues have been linked with numerous candidates to fill the soon to be vacant role.
Italy boss Antonio Conte was favourite for the job after reports claimed that the former Juventus manager has already agreed a deal in principle to join the club.
It is believed that Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo is considering a move for Pellegrini given his experience in the Premier League.
The Chilean led his current side to the league title as well as the league cup back in the 2013-2014 campaign, with club owner Roman Abramovich yet to make any confirmations regarding his decision.
