TuttoSport claims the Blues have been in touch with the German’s camp, in light of the confirmation that he will leave Dortmund at the end of the campaign following seven successful years at the helm.

According to the report, Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti is not out of the picture either if City do decide to part with Pellegrini, but the champions believe he would prefer to remain in Spain despite growing tired with constant speculation about his future.

This puts Klopp in pole position and City have clearly wasted no time in contacting him. The feedback they received from the 47-year-old is not yet clear.

Pellegrini won the Premier League and League Cup in his debut season in English football, but has failed miserably in his bid to replicate that success this term.

City have fallen out of contention to hold on to their crown in the league, and are out of all knock-out competitions, meaning they will end 2014-15 without a trophy, leaving the Chilean under immense pressure.
