Outgoing Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is expected to become the new Manchester City boss, is planning on raiding La Liga in order to bring new faces to the Etihad Stadium in the summer.
Pellegrini is planning on bringing in five new faces to Manchester, with four of them being from the league he currently manages in.
The 59-year-old manager will leave Malaga in order to join the English side after they fired their manager Roberto Mancini, who failed to win any silverware in the 2012/13 season.
City and Pellegrini have spoken about the vacant role and they have come to a verbal agreement that he will take over sometime in the summer.
The Chilean manager has already put together a wish-list of players he would like to bring to the Etihad, and it is reported that he has already been given the go-ahead to sign most of the wanted players.
Outside of La Liga, the new City boss wants to bring in Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernandinho.
From La Liga, it is reported that Pellegrini is heavily interested in signing Sevilla's Jesus Navas, Real Madrid's Pepe, Barcelona's Thiago and Malaga's Isco.
It is expected that City would have to pay up to £86m in order to secure all the players they want.
