Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to take charge of Saudi club Al-Shabab only a few days after being sacked by Roma.

Following his departure from the Italian capital on Tuesday morning, Mourinho’s entourage have launched talks with Al-Shabab.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport, Mourinho has already opened to the possibility of coaching in Saudi Arabia in January.

The Saudi club and Jorge Mendes – Mourinho’s agent – are currently discussing the details pertaining to the length of the Special One’s contract.

Di Marzio claims that the final agreement could be sealed within the next few days, ironically allowing Mourinho to be on the sidelines for Al-Shabab’s friendly with Roma on Wednesday in Riyadh.
