Reports across a number of UK papers today suggests that Roberto Mancini has thrown his hat into the ring to manage England.

From the Guardian to the Sun they all report that the Italian is 'keen' on the job as uncertainty over his future at Inter mounts.

Reports say that the doubts about his future are based a recent purchase of 70 per cent of the club by a Chinese group.

The former Manchester City boss only has one year left on hid deal at the San Siro.

Mancini certainly knows the game in England, having managed City for four seasons, winning a Premier League title and an FA Cup in the process.

One man who won't be getting the England job is Harry Redknapp, who will be spoken to by the FA to get his opinion on how to improve the team, but he won't be offered the job according to reports.

Sam Allardyce and Jyrgen Klinsmann are top of the betting with most bookies in the race for the job, with Guus Huddink also proving popular with punters.
