Antonio Conte, Thiago Motta the favorites to replace Mourinho at Roma

The future of Jose Mourinho remains shrouded in mystery as he prepares to enter the final six months of his contract with Roma.

The Portuguese technician is yet to address his future plans with the club after entering his third season in the Italian capital—prompting Roma to consider alternatives should the former Chelsea boss ultimately leave in June.

Over the course of the summer, Mourinho attracted several offers from Saudi Arabia and is expected to receive more tempting proposals in the coming months. The Special One has not ruled out the Saudi Pro League as a future option.

In the meantime, reports that Roma have also began making considerations for the future with two main names linked as Mourinho’s replacement at the end of the season.

The news portal claims Antonio Conte and Thiago Motta remain the heavy favorites for the managerial spot with the Giallorossi. However, both candidates are expected to draw considerable interest from other top clubs in the league including Napoli and Milan.
