Despite winning the Premier League last season, it is understood that Pellegrini is under serious pressure due to his team's struggles in Europe.

It is believed that some senior figures at City are unsure if Pellegrini is the correct man to take the club to the next level.

According to the Daily Mail, Simeone, who is widely regarded as one of the best coaches in the world, is on the wanted list at the Etihad.
