Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is demanding his foreign signings learn English - and quickly.

The Daily Star Sunday says new signings Jesus Navas, Fernandinho and ­Alvaro ­Negredo will start English lessons after the club's pre-season tour.

And even players like David Silva and Sergio Aguero have been told to improve their English - even though they have been at the club for three and two years respectively.

Chilean Pellegrini is fluent in English, despite this being his first job in the country.
