Sky Sports News understands that Roberto di Matteo has been lined up for the vacant manager's post at MK Dons.

The Dons are reported to see the former Italy international as the perfect replacement for Paul Ince, who took over from Mark Hughes at Blackburn last week.

Di Matteo, who played for Chelsea and Lazio and won 34 caps for Italy, retired from football in 2002 through injury.

However, the 38-year-old still retains strong links with London and is believed to be keen to step into management and sees the ambitious newly promoted League One club as the perfect challenge.

With sides now returning to pre-season training, the Dons are believed to be keen to make a quick appointment.

Di Matteo has been taking his coaching badges with Spurs assistant Gus Poyet, but MK Dons chairman Peter Winkelman claims he has received 40 applications to replace Ince.

The likes of Ian Holloway, Nigel Adkins, Steve Cotterill and Peter Reid have all been linked with the Dons.
