Could the FA Cup final be part of Roberto Mancini's swansong at Manchester City? According to a number of reports, the Italian is about to be replaced by Manuel Pellegrini (ESPN).
The Malaga coach has emerged as a potential successor to Mancini, who lost the Premier League title to rivals Manchester United this season.
Pellegrini guided Malaga into the Champions League quarterfinals this season and the side were just minutes from reaching the last four before Borussia Dortmund struck twice in injury-time in the second leg (BBC Sport).
The former Chile international also led Villarreal to the Champions League semifinals in 2006, but Mancini has failed to take City beyond the group stages of the tournament in the last two seasons.

The Colombia international has been linked with Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, but a report in French sports newspaper Le 10 Sport (via Daily Express) claimed Falcao could be joining Claudio Ranieri's team next season.
However, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has played down those reports (Sky Sports) and insists the player and the club are looking ahead to the Copa del Rey final against Real Madrid next week.
It looks as though the rumour mill will continue to flourish until Falcao finally makes his decision.

But Keller has now signed a two-year deal with the Gelsenkirchen club, the day after midfielder Julian Draxler also signed a new contract with Schalke (Bundesliga.com).

The future of AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri remains unclear after Sassuolo president Giorgio Squinzi claimed Silvio Berlusconi had criticised the San Siro boss (Football Italia).
And now veteran midfielder Massimo Ambrosini claims it would be a brave move to remove Allegri after the coach steered the team into the Champions League for next season, despite a poor start to the Serie A campaign following the loss of several key players (Football Italia).
However, the Milan captain also concedes Berlusconi is not a man to change his mind easily.
