FIGC commissioner Fabbricini confirms Mancini talks for Italy job

On Monday, Mancini told RAI state radio: "There has not been contact with the [Italian football] federation but, for a coach, the Italian national team would be a source of honour and prestige".

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is in talks to become the new Italy manager.

"Yesterday [Monday] FIGC's extraordinary vice-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta and Italy team manager Gabriele Oriali met Roberto Mancini, who gave his availability to terminate his contract with Zenit and to take the Italy coach role", Fabbricini said to ANSA.

"We agreed that we will start talking of figures and details on May 13, at the end of the Russian championship".

Negotiations with Mancini picked up after Carlo Ancelotti reportedly turned down the job.

Zenit are now 4th in the Russian Premier League with 50 points from 28 games and are 2 points away from UEFA Champions League qualification next year.

Italy have been looking for a new boss since Gian Piero Ventura was sacked following their failure to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation with Under-21 coach Luigi Di Biagio taking over the senior team on an interim basis.

Zenit however are not happy that Mancini is leaving having only taken over last June, but the club are only fifth in the Russian Super League standings with two matches remaining.

Mancini led City to their first Premier League title in 2012.

He could well take charge of Italy for their friendly matches against Saudi Arabia in May and France and Holland in June as they aim to rebuild their tattered global reputation.
