Pellegrini wants final say on Man City transfers

Manuel Pellegrini wants final say on all transfers at Manchester City.

The Sunday Mirror says the 59-year-old Chilean will work closely with City's director of football Txiki Begiristain when it comes to player recruitment , but he will retain full control over his first-team squad.

It is understood that the new City boss personally ratified the £50million outlay that has ­ already seen Jesus Navas and Fernandinho ­arrive at the Etihad - even though he doesn't officially start work for another eight days.
