Inter Milan are considering hiring former Manchester United manager David Moyes as their next boss, as the Scot is ready to move back into management and is on the lookout for a big move.

According to the Daily Star, the current incumbent at the San Siro, Walter Mazzarri, is coming under severe pressure from club officials after an uninspiring start to the Serie A season and possible replacements are being lined up.

One of these is Moyes, who has been out of a job since being sacked by Manchester United in April. The former Everton manager was given the chop after defeat to them near the end of last season, where it was confirmed the Old Trafford club could not qualify for the Champions League.

What was supposed to the appointment of his dreams and being hand-picked by the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson, it ended up being ten miserable months in charge of the Red Devils and dealing a hammer blow to his reputation.

The Daily Star report claims that Inter's current CEO Michael Bolingbroke could be an influence in his place on the list of potential placements for Mazzarri, should the club decide to wield the axe, as they worked together at Manchester United last year.

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is also reported to be one of the options considered by the Serie A club. The Italian led them to three straight Scudetti from 2005 to 2008 before being replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Mazzarri is struggling to get consistency from his players at the moment and they currently lie in mid table, having won just three times in eight fixtures. Despite, this, they are still well within reach of the last Champions League place and the Europa League qualification spaces, though they are unlikely to challenge for the title.

Could be awkward

If they do decide to dispense with the former Napoli boss and opt for Moyes, there is one player that may not exactly be relishing the arrival of the Scot. Nemanja Vidic left Manchester United in the summer on a free transfer to join Inter and his departure was met with rumours over a fall out.

Both Vidic and Moyes denied there had been any altercation and the then Old Trafford club's captain cited a desire for a change of scenery now he is coming to the end of his career.

Difficult start

It hasn't exactly been an easy transition for the Serbian centre-half. He has been bombarded with criticism after a number of error-strewn performances and was even called the worst signing of the summer, though that seems a touch premature.

Moyes recently had his first in-depth interview since being let go by Manchester United and announced he was ready to get back into management and was on the lookout for a suitable job.
