Roberto Mancini's agent has denied claims the Italian is set to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari as Chelsea boss or has been in talks with Manchester City.

Roberto Mancini's agent has denied claims the Italian is set to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari as Chelsea boss or has been in talks with Manchester City.

Mancini's agent Maurizio De Giorgis said: "I would know everything and I can tell you with certainty no club has come forward for Mancini.

"We have not had any contact with Chelsea, Manchester City or any other English club for that matter.

"For now no one has been in touch and therefore all this news is unfounded."
Despite De Giorgis' denials of any English link the Italian insists he would welcome interest in Mancini's services.

"I certainly hope they (Chelsea) come forward but, like I said, nothing so far," added De Giorgis.

"If they call, then we will answer them, obviously."

And claims the former Italy international met with representatives of City, as alleged last week, were also refuted.

"We were not in England last week. In the past we have been because Mancini has been studying English," said De Giorgis.

"I can tell you for sure Mancini is in Italy at the moment. He has been for quite some time.

"It's impossible he was seen in another place by other people. These reports are untrue."
