Former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini is being linked with the job at Real Madrid. Mancini, who yesterday received the 'Panchina D'Oro' - golden bench award - for his title winning efforts last season, is seen as a likely replacement for Bernd Schuster who is under extreme pressure to keep his job at the Spanish club.

Mancini has been linked with several high profile coaching jobs since leaving Inter Milan in the off-season, most notably the position at Chelsea.
