It's just over two weeks ago that Mourinho was sacked as manager of Spurs and he's already got himself two jobs in the meantime, whilst the Premier League club haven't got a single permanent manager. (1-0 Mourinho!)
Despite a poor time in charge of Spurs, the former Manchester United boss is reportedly eyeing up two of the players he managed whilst in north London.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, both Eric Dier and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are on the new Roma boss' wish list this summer.
The Italian paper claims the 58-year-old will ask his new team to make a bid for his two ex players when the transfer window opens.
Dier was a favourite of Mourinho's before he joined Spurs, with the Portuguese manager linked with the England player when he was in charge at Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old became a first choice centre back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium under Mourinho and has started 25 Premier League games this season.
Dier could be partnered with another Englishman in defence who has previously been managed by Mourinho, with Chris Smalling a regular for the Giallorossi, even if the new manager doesn't remember him.
Hojbjerg was signed by Mourinho at the beginning of the season and quickly established himself as an important member of the team.
Speaking about the former Southampton midfielder back in December, when Spurs briefly went top of the league, the manager said, "Pierre is, first of all, very intelligent. He reads the game very well. He's going to be a coach one day, for sure.
"...On the pitch, he reads the situation very, very well and the people that surround him are really compact, they read the game."
The article also says the former Special One could target RB Leipzig's Marcel Sabitzer, who he wanted when at Spurs, or Nemanja Matic, who he managed at Chelsea and United, as potential signings in midfield.
Corriere della Sera claim that Mourinho could also target United goalkeeper David de Gea on loan, with the Spaniard now second choice behind Dean Henderson.
It looks like rather than getting one band back together, Mourinho is hoping to start a new super group made up of players from all his ex teams, hopefully he still has Michael Essien's number...
