Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that he has verbally agreed a deal with Manchester City.
"I have a verbal agreement with them and I hope it is carried out," he said in an interview with the Andalusian television station Canal Sur on Wednesday.
"As of today, I don't have a signed contract.
"It is true that Manchester City have shown a lot of interest that I become their coach and I have had conversations with them.
"Until things have been signed, you cannot say everything is completely done."
