Manchester City manager to be offered Monaco job.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini shouldn’t be out of work for too long, as he is supposedly being lined up by Monaco, according to the Daily Mail.
The Italian looks likely to be sacked by City following a disappointing season. The former Inter Milan boss had a bad time in the transfer market last summer, spending the vast amounts of cash available to him on players that have not gone on to have any significant impact on the first team. As a result, his side have ended the season empty-handed, losing their Premier League title to rivals Manchester United and losing the FA Cup final to underdogs Wigan Athletic. They were also dumped out of the Champions League at the group stage.
Malaga’s Manuel Pellegrini has reportedly held talks to take over at the club, and could replace Mancini within the next few days.
Moneybags Monaco are preparing for life in Ligue 1 next season, and would like to improve on current manager Claudio Ranieri, and see Mancini as their first choice.
The 47-year-old would understandably be tempted by the job, as he could be given the funds to bring in world class stars such as Radamel Falcao, who is understood to be close to a move from Atletico Madrid.
