Serie A side set to look elsewhere for new manager.
Roma are set to end their interest in appointing Manchester City’s Roberto Mancini as their new manager according to Goal.com.
The Italian side were reportedly considering making an audacious attempt to bring the City boss to the Italian capital.
But the club have put the brakes on a move after being put off by Mancini’s wage demands.
Mancini was reportedly looking for a salary in the region of £4 million a year to join the Serie A side.
Roma now look set to focus their attention on AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri. Allegri would reportedly demand half the salary Mancini was looking for.
Allegri’s future at the San Siro is uncertain with reports in recent weeks suggesting that the club could appoint Parma manager Roberto Donadoni as their next boss this summer.
Roma are almost certain to be looking for a new manager this summer unless current interim boss Andrea Andreazzoli is able to guide them to a Champions League spot.
That is looking unlikely at the moment with the club currently lying in seventh place in the Italian top flight.
The Italian giants have been without a permanent manager since parting ways with Czech boss Zdenek Zeman in February.
