Former City boss in the running?

The vastly-experienced Manuel Pellegrini is the latest coach to be linked with Slaven Bilic's job.

The Croat's position at West Ham is under serious threat following United's poor start to the 017/18 campaign and several managers - including Rafa Benitez and Alan Pardew - have been linked with the role.

And now the Chilean - who is currently employed by Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune - is the latest big name to be linked with the post and a Premier League return, despite being under contract for a further 12 months.

West Ham's Board met at the weekend following Friday's night's 3-0 humbling against Brighton & Hove Albion to discuss Bilic's position.

The manager, who is out of contract at the end of the season is set to remain in charge for the foreseeable future, despite his team having accrued only eight points from their opening nine games of the campaign.
