Mourinho Wants Spinazzola to Stay amid Saudi Offer

José Mourinho wishes Leonardo Spinazzola didn’t leave despite getting an offer. The wingback is mulling his future since he has just one year left on his contract. The club won’t start the extension talks anytime soon. It could proceed during the season if things are going well, Corriere dello Sport relays.

The Azzurri staple is being pursued by a pair of Saudi clubs and also attracted interest from France. He has robust wages, €3M. However, finding a team wouldn’t be tough if he asked out. The Giallorossi will consider the prospective bids, but they must be sizeable.

Spinazzola is an integral part of the Roma’s Italian core along with Lorenzo Pellegrini, Bryan Cristante, Gianluca Mancini, Andrea Belotti, and Stephan El Shaarawy. He has reservations about bolting because he wants a prominent role in next summer’s European Championship. He was at the peak of his powers in the previous successful one but also tore his Achilles in the final against England.

The 30-year-old often dealt with recurring injuries in the past. Though, he registered 40 appearances across all competitions last season, a personal best. Spinazzola is a strong glue guy in the locker room and is well-liked by everybody, the outlet informs. In addition, his family is very at ease in the Italian capital.
