No Blues contact with Mancini

Roberto Mancini's advisor says his client is keen to coach in England after leaving Internazionale but has not been in contact with Chelsea. Maurizio de Giorgis insists Mancini has left the San Siro, although there has still been no official confirmation from the Serie A side, and has been strongly linked with the vacant post at Stamford Bridge. However, de Giorgis told Sky Sports: "He had a meeting with the president (Massimo Moratti) and they decided not to continue with him. As of yesterday Roberto Mancini is not the coach of Inter Milan anymore. "He is very disappointed of course, he was not expecting that to happen, but in football things can happen quickly and unexpectedly and this is one of those occasions. "As of now there is no contact with Chelsea. Roberto Mancini is not a person or coach who likes to propose himself to a club, he waits for a club to look after him so we are in that position right now. We are not proposing Mancini to any club. "It's a natural consequence of what has happened. Chelsea are one of the top five clubs in the world so it is more likely, if there will be any talk, there is more chances of it to happen now than before. "There are chances but at the moment, as of today, there has been no official contact with Chelsea or any other team."
