According to Chilean newspaper El Mercurio, former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has just two options for his next club, Everton or Fenerbaçhe.

Everton are currently searching for their next manager, having sacked Roberto Martinez earlier this month.

A whole host of names have been linked with the job, ranging from Southampton manager Ronald Koeman to Frank de Boer.

Pellegrini is reportedly among those being considered, after he left Manchester City at the end of this past season.

And according to El Mercurio, Everton are one of the only options left to him for his next job, alongside Turkish giants Fenerbaçhe.

It is as yet unknown whether the Blues will make a move for him though, with them likely to step up their hunt in the coming weeks.

They could certainly do much worse than the Chilean given the experience he has in the game.

He has managed big clubs, including Real Madrid, while his work at Malaga in getting them into the latter stages of the Champions League should not be ignored.

He would likely need convincing about the funds, and indeed the club’s ambition, could match his own before signing on at Goodison Park though.
