Manchester United could turn to former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini to take over as their new manager in the summer. The Red Devils have Ralf Rangnick in the hotseat until the summer.
Italy boss Mancini is an option for United ahead of the summer with the coach tempted by a return to the Premier League.
It comes as the Red Devils ramp up their search for a new manager after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.
Rangnick came in on an interim basis but is expected to step aside in the summer as he takes up a consultancy role next season.
And the bigwigs at Old Trafford are devising a shortlist of potential coaches to take on the role with plenty of top names linked.
Among them include Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag and Luis Enrique, but another name that has propped up is Mancini.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the 57-year-old has an interest in taking over at the Theatre of Dreams – and the feeling is mutual.
Romano told Rio Ferdinand’s FIVE podcast: “Let’s see what happens with Roberto Mancini.
“Mancini will be busy with Italy to see what happens with the World Cup with qualifying in March, but that could be an option.
“He is tempted by the Premier League, he wants to come back to the Premier League one day. I will add his name to the list.”
The Italian has impressed with the Azzurri, where he won the European Championship last year against England at Wembley.
It is a remarkable rise for a country that were in serious need of a revamp after missing out on the World Cup in Brazil, three years prior.
However, his past with City might be a problem for the United fans – who have already made their feelings clear over other managers in similar situations.
Brendan Rodgers was shouted down by the Red Devils faithful despite being sacked by Liverpool in 2015.
Mancini famously won the Premier League for City in 2012 in the most dramatic of circumstances after Sergio Aguero scored a last-gasp winner against QPR on the final day.
That was the first league title won at the Etihad – with the club going on to land four more and another potentially on the way this season.
