José Mourinho is working on the next transfer window with his sporting director Tiago Pinto, who wants to be particularly ambitious.
José Mourinho’s first season at Roma has had its ups and downs. After an excellent start, the club from the Italian capital quickly ran out of steam. The fault in particular of a rather short workforce to play on several tables, which had also deplored the Portuguese technician this fall. Now relegated to 6th place in Serie A nine points from the podium, the Wolf is also preparing to find the Norwegians of Bodø / Glimt, who humiliated them last October (6-1), in the quarter-finals of the Europa League Conference.
The end of the season will allow us to see more clearly the ambitions of the Giallorossi in the medium term. A qualification for a European Cup or not will necessarily change the situation but already José Mourinho is thinking about the next transfer window. According to information from Sky Sport Italia, the Special One board with Tiago Pinto to draw the outlines of the future workforce. He has already communicated his particular needs to his sporting director but to do so, the Italian media warns, he will also have to make a big sale.
Roma will put big resources on the table
All eyes at the club are on Nicolo Zaniolo. The attacking midfielder is arguably the greatest talent available at Roma but his physical fragility and irregularity are starting to give management pause. He has two years left on his contract so now might be the time to sell him. Be careful though, you will have to pay the price. The bidding will be set at €60 million. Below, the management will not even sit at the negotiating table, assures the media. A transfer of Jordan Veretout is also a very serious hypothesis.
If the Wolf is aiming for such a sum, it is because Mourinho wants at least three first-rate reinforcements, one per line. The Lusitanian coach wants a left-handed central defender as a priority, capable of playing in a line of 3 or 4 elements. Karsdorp does not give complete satisfaction either. No name is given but the Romans have already thought of a few tracks like Granit Xhaka or Boubacar Kamara, whose profile often comes up. Whatever the identity of the new arrivals, Roma will make large resources available.
