ABC Sevilla report that Real Betis have reached an agreement with Manuel Pellegrini to take charge of the Primera club until 2022, with the option of an extension to 2023.

The Andalusian club will make the announcement official once their safety in the top-flight is guaranteed for another season. The Chilean has been in talks with Los Verdiblancos for the last three weeks regarding their managerial vacancy.

During the summer of 2019 Betis spoke to the 66-year-old regarding taking over but nothing materialised. Since leaving West Ham United, he has reportedly had offers from Valencia and Fenerbahçe. Betis will be his fourth spell in charge of a La Liga club, having managed at Villarreal, Real Madrid and Malaga.
