The former Man City boss could be tempted by a move back to Italy.
Less than 24 hours after being sacked by Manchester City, Roberto Mancini has potential new employers in Serie A as AS Roma and Napoli show interest in the Italian, reports the Telegraph.
Mancini was removed from his position at Eastlands after failing to bring any silverware to the club in the 2012/13 season and a poor Champions League effort – that saw the side crash out in the group stages after failing to win a single game.
Yet an FA Cup and maiden Premier League title in his three-and-a-half years at City is clearly enough to show clubs in his home nation that the 48-year-old is worth fighting for.
Roma have been linked with Mancini even before he was sacked, as their previous coach Zdenek Zeman was fired earlier in the season and they believe the former Inter boss would be the ideal replacement.
However, top European football could be more tempting for the Italian as Napoli also want to close a deal to bring him to the Stadio San Paolo.
The club are certain to finish second in Serie A behind Juventus and therefore guarantee themselves another season in the Champions League.
Also with their coach Walter Mazzarri failing to agree a new contract with the club, president Aurelio de Lauerntiis may cut his losses with the current boss and make a move for Mancini whilst he is still available.
Naples may be a more attractive destination for the now ex-City manager as well as it is the home city of his wife.
However, with newly rich AS Monaco linked with bringing Mancini into their club Roma and Napoli will have to move fast if they want to secure his services.
