Sacked Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has been exploring his next move.

The Sun says he spent yesterday in secret two-hour talks with one of the country's top employment barristers, Paul Gilroy QC.

His replacement Roberto Mancini is on a 3½-year deal worth £10.5m. He is also on a £1m bonus to finish in the top four or win a trophy.

Furious Hughes listened yesterday to advice from top barrister Gilroy who helped Alan Curbishley win his unfair dismissal case against West Ham.
