What is the news?
Mourinho has been heavily linked with a move away from AS Roma this summer, with Paris Saint-Germain and his former club Real Madrid reportedly interested. Ahead of Roma’s Europa League final with Sevilla on Wednesday, Mourinho was asked about his future with the Italians. The Portuguese manager made it clear that he has not spoken with any other clubs and is fully focused on Roma.
What did Mourinho say?
Speaking with reports on the press conference, Mourinho said: “I think that if any of us have a question similar to yours, they should ask Midilibar because he has no contract. I spoke to my two captains and they asked me a question similar to yours. I answered them objectively. They don’t want me to answer, but they know what I want. It’s different than Inter because I hadn’t signed with Real Madrid, but it was all done. Now I have nothing, zero contacts with other clubs. I think about tomorrow and what we want us, to do because we want to play”.
After spending two seasons at Roma, it was reported that Mourinho was ready to move away from the Italians. The former Manchester United and Chelsea manager has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, who are looking to replace Christophe Gaultier after a disappointing season. Meanwhile, Roma’s owners have not met with representatives of Mourinho about his future at the club. The manager’s deal will run out next season.
