Roma and Jose Mourinho are yet o discuss their respective long-term plans.

The Portuguese technician has made it known to the club in recent weeks that he would be open to the possibility of renewing his deal.

After three years in the capital, Mourinho declared himself happy with the situation he is in. The Special One has a deep connection with the fanbase and is eager to work within Roma’s established parameters despite the influence of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play restrictions.

However, Leggo reports that for the moment all discussions are on stand-by. Further developments are expected to take place between now and January or February.

In the meantime, the newspaper claims Roma’s new sponsor, Riyadh Season, could play a role in the club’s negotiations with Mourinho. The Saudi partner considers Mourinho a huge boost to their brand given his global fame and visibility.
