Massimo Ficcadenti denies he's been offered the Cagliari job.
Ficcadenti has been offered the post after the dismissal of Roberto Donadoni.
"I am out of this,” said Ficcadenti. “I heard the reports too, but I have nothing to say.”
The 43-year-old might not be appointed until Tuesday, as Monday is a public holiday in Italy.
Ficcadenti kept Cesena in Serie A last season, following on from spells at Piacenza, Verona and Reggina.
