Roberto Mancini eyes Premier League return

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has set his sights on a Premier League return, and could be interested in taking over at Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester United.

According to the Daily Mail, the Italian tactician is coming under increasing pressure at Galatasaray, and has already ordered his representatives to sound out any possible job opportunities away from Istanbul.

The 49-year-old penned a three-year deal at the Turk Telekom Arena last summer, but after crashing out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage and dropping to third in the Super Lig table, there are suggestions that Turkish giants could part company with Mancini at the end of the season.

With uncertainty surrounding the respective futures of both Tim Sherwood and David Moyes at White Hart Lane and Old Trafford, Mancini's advisors might already be planning to make known his availability in the summer.

Given his ties with Manchester City, it's unclear whether Manchester United would even consider hiring the Italian, if they decided to sack Moyes at the end of 2013/14.

Spurs would therefore probably represent a more realistic option for Mancini, with his proven track record in England - he won the Premier League title with City in 2011/12 - likely to appeal to Daniel Levy.

Mancini still has many admirers in Italy, with Sampdoria and Lazio both believed to be monitoring his situation at Galatasaray closely, but it's clear the ex-Citizens head coach would favour a Premier League return should the opportunity present itself.
