Jose Mourinho Urges Roma to Sign More Players This Summer

Jose Mourinho expects Roma to make more signings before the end of the transfer window despite already landing five new players. In the pre-Salernitana conference, the Special One hailed the club’s effort to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) but called on for more arrivals. 

Leandro Paredes, Renato Sanches, Evan Ndicka, Houssem Aouar, and Rasmus Kristensen have joined Roma so far. Between cut-price deals and loan fees, their arrivals have cost I Giallorossi a mere €3.5 million. In today’s market, where Chelsea can splurge almost a billion in three transfer windows, the Italians’ outlay seems almost sarcastic.

However, it’s what it is, and Mourinho cannot do anything but accept the reality. Roma will start the new season tomorrow against Salernitana without a new striker. Despite trying to sign a replacement for Tammy Abraham all summer, they’ve had no luck.

Mourinho refuses to give up as he praises Roma for staying within FFP regulations despite bringing several reinforcements.

A lot has been done and very well. Raising €30m under pressure, that was not easy for the club. We have certain legal and economic limitations, so it was difficult to do better in the circumstances,” the Roma boss said, as relayed by Gianluca Di Marzio.

Mourinho also sees room for improvement as he urges his Roma superiors to flex their financial muscle down the final stretch.

I cannot say that I am happy because the season kicks off tomorrow, but I do not argue and try to be positive because the players need my positivity. I am convinced the club will sign who I want.
