Former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini has played down reports linking him with Notts County.

"When will I return? When the time comes," said Mancini in an interview with Rai TV programme Studio Sprint.

"I have several options but I will only evaluate them in the future. I am in no hurry."

The 44-year-old, who became Inter's most successful manager in 30 years after guiding the club to three Scudetti, two Coppa Italia and two Italian Supercups, has openly declared in the past his wish to coach in England.

In the last 12 months, Mancini has been a reported target of West Ham, Chelsea, Fulham and Leicester City, where he played at the end of his career.
