Former Manchester City boss, Roberto Mancini has become the latest manager to be linked with the top managerial role at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have made a stuttering start to the new campaign with 4 losses so far, and no wins at home.

Before the international break, enormous pressure was on the boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, who had lost back to back matches to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.

And reports in England had claimed the Norwegian would be sacked if he didn’t win the Everton match.

However Solskjaer did win, and in some style, with Bruno Fernandes hitting a brace, but the rumours are yet to completely go away.

According to Italian news outlet, TuttoSport, Mancini is also a candidate for the job, after his impressive work at the Italian national team.

However, the issues that could stop the move from happening for now at least, is that Ed Woodward recently came out to publicly back Solskjaer, after the 3-1 win against The Toffees, so it’s rather unlikely he’d want to fire the Norwegian right after that.

Reports also say Mancini is currently relishing his role at Italy, and he’s not considering quitting, especially with his side set to qualify for the Nations League finals.
