David Moyes' move to Manchester United last summer from Everton was the natural progression in his career.
The Scot had performed wonders on a shoe-string budget at Goodison Park and was the recommendation to the board from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson.
But it did not go to plan for him at United. Moyes struggled to get the star-studded squad to play to the standard he managed at Everton and they failed to win any silverware, whilst they also failed to qualify for Europe.
With that in mind the club decided they had made a mistake on Moyes. They sent him packing at the end of the season and Moyes has been out of work since.
He has had to look on enviously as new boss Louis van Gaal has spent plenty of cash on the club.
Moyes is still out of a job, despite having an interview with Galatasaray in the summer, but he is now being rumoured to have a job lined up in Italy.
It is being reported in Sportmediaset that Inter Milan are ready to bring Moyes to the club as the board loses patience with Walter Mazzarri.
Inter have lost their past two games handsomely, being routed by Cagliari and Fiorentina.
Inter's owner Erick Thohir is said to be considering the role of Mazzarri - with Moyes a potential recruit.
He has raided United twice recently. Their former COO Michael Bollingbroke was appointed Inter CEO and they also brought in veteran Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United.
Moyes has previously mentioned a desire to manage abroad upon his return and this may very well be his opportunity.
