Mancini set to remain as Inter coach

More Headlines

Following a breakthrough in securing their transfer targets, Inter boss Roberto Mancini seems willing to remain on as coach for the upcoming season.

Reports suggested last week that Mancini would be walking away from the club imminently following a breakdown in the relationship between himself and the board, but a compromise appears to have been reached to ensure that he will remain.

One of Mancini’s main gripes was the club’s inability to secure their number one transfer targets, but with the signing of Antonio Candreva and the progress being made on Santos ace Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa, the tactician’s concerns seems to have cooled down.

Mancini is still upset that talks over extending his current deal that expires in 2017 have not begun, but the Suning Group could offer him a one-year extension in the coming months to keep both parties happy.

The 51-year-old had been annoyed by Inter’s constant links to Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone about taking over next season, but after a truce last Thursday when Mancini met with the club’s owners, both parties have agreed to all pull in the same direction.

The Nerazzurri will begin their Serie A campaign with a trip to Chievo.
