Roma to Try Agreeing to an Extension with Mourinho

José Mourinho is under contract with Roma for two more years, until 2024, but the club wants to lock him down for longer. The partnership has yielded strong results in a hurry. The Giallorossi wish to ensure the Special One stays at the helm for a while, La Repubblica informs.

On the other hand, the negotiation might not be easy. He’s one of the highest-paid coaches in Serie A and makes €8M annually. A massive severance package from Tottenham after the firing helped the capital side appoint him in 2021. The Portuguese coach is in no rush to prolong his deal.

The talks between Roma and Mourinho could ramp up during the World Cup break. The gaffer has often stated that he’s very comfortable in Italy, but his bounce-back spell has started to draw the attention of other clubs.

The boss led the Giallorossi to a sixth-placed finish in his first year back in Italy and took home the first-ever edition of the European Conference League. They currently sit in the same position after topping Inter over the last weekend. He has collected 35 wins, 13 draws, and 17 losses in 65 total matches with La Lupa thus far.

Our Take on Roma and Mourinho

It quickly proved to be a match made in heaven. The Special One is perfect for a passionate fan base that had been starving for some success. He should stick around, especially because the choice revived his reputation after resounding flops at his previous stops. Although, at some point, he might feel the urge to take on another challenge, perhaps in Premier League, so he might not set roots after all.
