Inter Milan president considering move for sacked Manchester City boss.
Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini could make a swift return to management with his old club Inter Milan, according to the Daily Express.
The Italian was sacked last week following City’s shock FA Cup final defeat to underdogs Wigan Athletic, and has been linked with a number of vacant managerial positions in both Italy and France.
The 48-year-old immediately emerged as a candidate for jobs at Napoli, PSG and Monaco, but there is also likely to be a position available at the San Siro with former club Inter this summer.
Current manager Andrea Stramaccioni is under pressure after a disappointing 9th place finish in Serie A, and Napoli’s Walter Mazzarri had been the favourite to replace him, though club president Massimo Moratti did not rule out a return for Mancini, who won three league titles with the club between 2004 and 2008.
“Is Mancini an option? Anything’s a possibility in football,” Moratti is quoted as saying.
Mancini, who is expected to be replaced by Malaga’s Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium, could still replace Carlo Ancelotti at PSG, with his fellow countryman being the prime target for the Real Madrid job.
