Man Utd are evaluating Roberto Mancini as a potential replacement to Ole Gunnar Solskjær should the latter be sacked.

The Norwegian gaffer has divided opinions since signing on as the head coach, barely touching standards and delivering inconsistent results.

Solskjær has led his side into a rather mediocre start to the campaign – having bested RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain but also having failed to win a single league game at home so far this season.

There were even rumours that the Man Utd gaffer’s job could’ve been in serious trouble if he had not secured a win at Goodison Park.

Nevertheless, Tuttosport (via Sports Witness) suggests that Ed Woodward is willing to be patient with the former Cardiff City boss and has assured him that the board will not rush into making a decision against him.

However, the Italian outlet also went on to claim that the Old Trafford hierarchy have admirers of Mancini within and they are interested in bringing him back to Manchester.

The Italian was the last manager to outdo the great Sir Alex Ferguson as he led Man City to their first Premier League title since the 1960s – giving birth to the iconic “Aguero” moment.

Although the veteran was sacked later on, he has impressed with his management of the Italian national team who are into the last four of the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League.

Which is likely why the former City coach is said to be not eager to quit his current job, especially with Euro 2020 and the next World Cup coming up in just the next 2 years.
