Jose Mourinho contacted by Chelsea as he considers his Roma future

Jose Mourinho could take over from Lampard in the summer for another spell at Chelsea, according to a sensational report.

Lampard is the interim replacement for Graham Potter, but Luis Enrique and Julian Nagelsmann are just two options as permanent replacements – while former Spurs boss Nuno has also apparently been contacted.

“Chelsea have reportedly sounded out Jose Mourinho over a sensational third stint in charge of the club,” a report in The Sun claims, which cites Spanish outlet Relevo.

“Todd Boehly has brought back former Blues boss Frank Lampard to take charge of the team until the end of the season as he looks for long-term replacements for Potter.

“And he’s reportedly sought out club legend Mourinho over a potential third reign as Chelsea chief.

“It’s also claimed the Blues brass have also reached out to Mourinho’s countryman Nuno Espirito Santo about the job.”

Mourinho considers Roma future

Roma manager Jose Mourinho will weigh up his options at the end of the season.

The Italian side must decide whether to stick or twist with the Portuguese manager.

Roma are tied for fourth place in Serie A and are just five points off second in Serie A, and if they qualify for the Champions League next season, Mourinho will want heavy investment.

The Daily Mail states: “Roma offered Mourinho a sanctuary in the wake of his third managerial spell in London, with several fans doubting the serial winner after his failed pursuit of silverware at Spurs.

“While Juventus saw Paulo Dybala as a problem to solve towards the end of his seven-year spell in Turin, Mourinho welcomed him with open arms, delighted to have a player with genuine star quality among his ranks.

“If Roma fails to support Mourinho in the summer transfer window sufficiently, the Giallorossi chiefs risk losing both their esteemed manager and star player.

Not only would it force the club to hit the reset button on their ongoing project, but losing two key men would likely pen an irreversible wound between the board and the fans.”
