Jose Mourinho could become the highest-paid manager EVER

Jose Mourinho could become the highest-paid manager EVER

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has been offered a new role that could make him the highest-paid manager in world football.

Former Chelsea and current Roma boss Jose Mourinho has been offered £100 million to become the next coach of Saudi Arabia, following Herve Renard's exit.

He could very well be tempted by a sensational reunion with former star and compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo as Al Nassr are also reportedly interested in Mourinho's services.

Mourinho is doing an excellent job as AS Roma manager currently, lifting the UEFA Europa Conference League trophy with them last season. This season, they are in the fight for the UEFA Champions League spots.

With his contract at Roma running out in the summer of 2024, the Portuguese manager is likely to be a target for clubs across Europe too.

With his future at Roma looking less secure with each passing day, Mourinho has been approached by the 'top management' to coach the Saudi Arabian national team.

The Portuguese has been offered a two-year-deal worth £100 million broken down into two payments with €60million each year.

The deal includes the option to end the contract after one year or extend it up to the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Reports in Italy have also suggested that Saudi Arabian outfit Al Ahli are also looking to hire Mourinho, who currently enjoys a strong relationship with Roma fans but has been frustrated by the lack of business done to improve the squad.

Most recently, Mourinho stopped Roma fans from making racist chants targeted at Sampdoria manager Dejan Stankovic, who famously played in the Champions League winning side under the Portuguese.

Such is the strength of his relationship with the Roma fans and with his exit looking likely, a move to Saudi Arabia could be a tempting prospect in the twilight of his managerial career.
