Restless Mourinho Weighing His Options if He Left Roma

José Mourinho stated that he wanted to talk directly with the Roma owners, the Friedkin family, before committing to playing out the final year of his contract or start discussing an extension. At this stage, there hasn’t been a meeting nor a phone call yet, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The Special One has lofty ambitions for the capital side, but his stint has been far from impressive besides lifting the European Conference League. He needs to finish in the top four or win the Europa League for the present season to be considered successful.

Mourinho occasionally questioned the transfer market strategies of the team. However, according to the publication, any move has either been suggested by him or rubber-stamped when director Tiago Pinto came up with it first.

Considering the uncertain future, the Portuguese coach has fielded some calls to gauge the interest in his regard. He inquired with familiar teams like Chelsea, where Graham Potter’s permanence hinges on the Champions League, and Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti is the favorite to take over Brazil at the end of the season. However, Florentino Peres has zeroed in on Mauricio Pochettino. His camp touched base with PSG as well. Christophe Galtier is highly likely to get the ax.

Our Take on Mourinho and Roma

There was a reason why he ended up at the Giallorossi in the first place. His time in the Italian capital has been okay but probably not enough to entice super-duper clubs. He wouldn’t lack options if he didn’t stay, with Inter perhaps in the mix as well, but maybe not at the level he hopes. His style is quite ancient, and his best attribute is that he’s a great umbrella for everything and anybody else.
