Jose Mourinho Reportedly Approached To Take Over At AS Roma
Jose Mourinho could be back in football next season with a return to Serie A on the cards with reports that AS Roma have already approached him to take over in the summer.
Whether you love or loathe Jose Mourinho it's impossible not to say that football is more entertaining with him as manager of a team. Sure that teams football might not be exciting but there's rarely a dull moment off the pitch.
By the time the 56 year old was sacked as Manchester United boss part way through December he'd reportedly had arguments with about three quarters of his team and stripped Paul Pogba of the captaincy.
Since then the one time Special One has been out of the spotlight and out of work but it hasn't stopped his name being linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Before Zinedine Zidane went back to Real Madrid it was Mourinho being touted to a return to the Bernabeu whilst there's also been links to Bayern Munich and Lyon for the former Chelsea boss.
According to Sky Italia, via the Mirror, it could be a return to Italy that is next on the cards for Mourinho. The report says that Roma have contacted him about next season, although the talks are at an early stage.
