Saudi Arabia Try to Entice Mourinho to Leave Roma

Jose Mourinho has been offered a deal that could see him become the highest paid manager in football history. The Special One has undertaken challenges at some of the top football clubs in the world, including Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Inter Milan among others, but has never coached a national team.

The Saudi Arabian Football Federation, led by president Yasser Al Misehal, reportedly want Mourinho take charge of the Saudi Arabia national team – succeeding French coach Herve Renard, who will now lead the France women’s national football team.

Corriere dello Sport reports of a €120M offer being readied for Mourinho, spread over the course of two years.

He is contractually tied to Roma until 2024, but his stay will largely depend on his team’s ability to squeeze a UEFA Champions League spot, as they currently sit tied on 50 points alongside Inter. Milan are just one point ahead, but Atalanta and Juventus aren’t far behind the Giallorossi and the Milan duo either.

The coming weeks will prove crucial in negotiations between the Roma board and Mourinho regarding his future at the club.
