LONDON (AP) -As Manchester United undergoes a smooth handover of power, Manchester City appears to be in disarray.

City manager Roberto Mancini has publicly expressed anger that the club is not disputing reports that Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini has been lined up to replace him.

For his part, Pellegrini has only denied that he has signed an agreement with City.

City chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak and his board members haven't made a public statement supporting Mancini as the club's season has imploded.

The expensively-assembled team exited the Champions League in the group stage for the second straight season, and finished second to United in the Premier League.
