The 'Tinkerman' says he is keen to remain with Roma before stepping up to the Italy podium.
"Italy temptation? There is only one future for me. I can only thank the FIGC if they considered me, but I am thinking about Roma for now as I have started something and I want to finish it," he told Sky Sport 24.
The door is not shut firmly on the Azzurri though as Ranieri leaves it tactfully open.
"In future I would like to coach a national team. Hopefully it will be the Italian one. I would like to coach them during a European Championships or World Cup."
