Roberto Mancini is set to become the new manager of the Italy national team

Roberto Mancini has opened talks over becoming Italy's new national team coach, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has confirmed.

Costacurta had set a May 20 deadline to appoint a new coach in order to have his side ready for friendlies later in the month and the opening rounds of the UEFA Nations League.

"We left it that we will start to talk about figures and the details on May 13, once the Russian season has ended".

"Yesterday (Monday) in Rome there was a meeting. with Roberto Mancini, who said he was ready to end his relationship with Zenit and coach the national team", Fabbricini said in quotes carried by Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Ancelotti, most recently the coach at Bayern Munich, spoke informally with Costacurta last week.

As well as positive viewer numbers, the second season has also pushed expectations for women. The length of the new season or a rough release date hasn't been confirmed yet.

"I would like to make it clear that nothing has been decided yet", Fabbricini added.

Italy have been looking for a new boss since Gian Piero Ventura was sacked following their failure to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation with Under-21 coach Luigi Di Biagio taking over the senior team on an interim basis. "We've told Mancini clearly that the FIGC has a budget for the role which it does not intend to deviate from".

"I repeat, he has given us his availability and, from May 13, we'll go into the details".

"I think that right now, the national team don't have so numerous champions they've always had, but they still have good players, while more are coming through in Italy". The 4-times World Champions failed to reach the FIFA World Cup finals for the first time in 60 long years this summer under Ventura.

"It's not going to be the same and we can only hope that the national team gets back to being among the best in the world", he said. Being behind the others isn't nice for us football lovers.
