West Ham to break the bank for Pellegrini

West Ham are preparing to pay Manuel Pellegrini a higher salary than Antonio Conte or Jurgen Klopp.

Conte, who won the Premier League last season and Klopp, who had led Liverpool to the final of the Champions League are believed to earn slightly less than the £10million annual salary West Ham are preparing to offer the 64-year-old Chilean to become the club's next full time manager.

And according to writer Ken Dyer, the sum is more than four times the salary paid to temporary boss David Moyes, who left the club last week despite steering the Hammers to 13th spot in the Premier League.

Only two Premier League managers are believed to earn more than Pellegrini will be paid as the next manager of West Ham - they being Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, who led their teams to first and second spot in the league last season respectively.

The former manager of Chinese Super League side Hebei Fortune is expected to hold talks with West Ham's co-owner David Sullivan this afternoon (Monday). Should all proceed as planned, Pellegrini should be named as West Ham's new manager within 24 hours.

West Ham are also hoping to reunite Pellegrini with Ruben Cousillas, who has worked as Pellegriniís assistant since they first teamed up at San Lorenzo more than 20 years ago.

Meanwhile Eduardo Macia, 44 - who is currently at Leicester and previously worked with Rafa Benitez at Liverpool - is understood to have been recommended by Pellegrini for the newly-created Director of Football role.
