Mancini to Madrid? Exclusive rumour

Bookmark and Share
Roberto Mancini is currently clubless after leaving Inter Milan, but he has been linked with a number of teams around Europe - including Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants have been struggling recently and Iberian paper AS had reported that the Italian was the number one candidate for the job if Bernd Schuster was kicked out by unforgiving president Ramon Calderon.

However, Mancio's representative Maurizio De Giorgis has denied the reports - but revealed that Mancini wouldn't mind the Real post should it become available.

"We are pleased with this news regarding the reported interest from Real, it's news for us too but there is nothing official," De Giorgis told

"They are just unfounded rumours as Real Madrid have not been in touch with us regarding Mancini.

"There is nothing official.

"I hope it's not all unfounded news though, but like I said, the Spanish club have not made contact.

"QPR? Absolutely not. We have maximum respect for QPR but I don't think Mancini would go there. If you compare Real Madrid with QPR...

"QPR have not been in touch, neither has Flavio Briatore.

"That is another rumour from the press who have nothing else to write about.

"The Golden Bench award? We are delighted. He deserves the award. He is a great coach and he has won many things and he deserves it."

Mancini will be hoping Real come knocking on the door sooner rather than later.

The former Sampdoria man is looking for a way back into football and there will be no better way than to do it with one of the world's biggest clubs.
