Mancini ready for 'new experience'

Former Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini, who has been linked with the manager's job at Chelsea, claims his next post will not be in Italy.Mancini has been out of work since being sacked by Inter at the end of last season despite guiding them to a hat-trick of Serie A titles.The 44-year-old has been linked with a spate of clubs both at home and abroad over the past year, with speculation about a move to Juventus growing stronger following a recent poor run by Claudio Ranieri's men.However, while Mancini believes he will be back in charge of a club soon, he insists it will not be a Serie A side."It's possible that I'll return to coaching from next year," he told Sky Italia. "But abroad."Why abroad? After 30 years in Italy it's right to have a new experience, this is the right time."Would I say no to Juve or AC Milan? They are great clubs, but as of today they are unrealistic options."Mancini has also been heavily linked to Chelsea, with Guus Hiddink set to leave at the end of the season, as well as Bayern Munich who sacked coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Monday.However, he claims he is not currently in discussions with any club.Mancini added: "All the time there are reports that I'm going to Chelsea, to Bayern, to Real Madrid. But there is nothing, not even talks, at the moment."Moreover. I am still under contract with Inter, I first have to sort out that situation."
