Mancini has been linked with the post as Cesare Prandelli ponders stepping down after the World Cup.
âIf I was called then it is only logical that I would talk about it,â he told Quotidiano Nazionale.
âI would be very happy to discuss such an opportunity because, let us be clear about this, Italy is Italy â it is not a club side.
âTo be the Coach of the Nazionale has a special appeal, itâs unique, therefore of course I would talk about it.â
