Manchester City are set to formally unveil new manager Manuel Pellegrini at a press conference.

The Chilean will be presented to media at the club's training ground on Wednesday, almost four weeks after his appointment was confirmed.

He will be joined by new signing Fernandinho, the Brazilian midfielder bought from Shakhtar Donetsk at a cost to the club of £30million.

Pellegrini met the majority of his squad this week for the start of their pre-season programme.

They travel to South Africa later in the week ahead of friendlies against SuperSport United and AmaZulu FC.

They are also participating in the Barclays Asia Trophy in Hong Kong this month before playing a tournament in Munich and a friendly against Arsenal in Helsinki.

They begin their Barclays Premier League campaign against Newcastle on August 17.

The high-profile arrivals of Pellegrini and Fernandinho, and Spain winger Jesus Navas from Sevilla for an initial £14.9million, have heralded a summer of change.

Former captain Carlos Tevez has also left the club for Juventus.
