Mourinho’s recent decision to decline the approach of the Portuguese federation prompted the media to stop most speculations ahead of the January window.
However, according to La Repubblica, the Special One is yet to make a long-term decision as his contract with Roma is valid until 2024.
Mourinho will reportedly work towards a Champions League qualification with the Giallorossi: if this objective were to be met, his stay at Roma would be guaranteed and the manager’s entourage could even consider the possibility of extending his contract.
The rapport with Roma’s owners, Dan and Ryan Friedkin, is excellent, claims the Italian newspaper. However, both sides acknowledge the importance of achieving a certain number of objectives before entertaining any long-term plans.
