Roma have reportedly joined the queue of clubs ready to make an offer to available tactician Pep Guardiola.
The former Barcelona boss is currently taking a year out of the game, but he has confirmed that he will return to a bench for 2013-14.
Although giants such as both Manchester clubs, Chelsea and Milan have been paired with him, Roma are said to be interested too.
According to reports in Spain, Roma director general Franco Baldini has already held a New York meeting – where the former Brescia and Roma player is currently living – about the possibility of taking over in the capital.
Guardiola refused to rule out a future at Roma, although it does seem unlikely that the Giallorossi would win the race for his signature.
La Magica are currently bossed by Zdenek Zeman, the Czech who signed a two-year deal with the Stadio Olimpico outfit in the summer.
