Claudio Ranieri has denied that he has had any contact with Manchester City but concedes the thought of a return to the Barclays Premier League appeals.

Ranieri, who was at Wembley to watch England´s 1-1 draw with Brazil, decided to leave Italian club Parma after helping to keep the Serie A strugglers up and is now a free agent.

Asked on Sky Sports News if he had been in talks with City, he replied: "No. Not yet. Maybe (I would be interested) but nothing is sure."
