According to the Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho, the manager of Roma, has reportedly been offered more than £100 million to coach Saudi Arabia in a two-year contract, making him the highest-paid manager in history.
The Al-Nassr team of Cristiano Ronaldo, who is expected to leave his club at the end of the current campaign, has expressed interest in Mourinho, according to the English news outlet on Thursday.
The 60-year-old Portuguese player signed with Roma in 2021, and his current deal with the Serie A powerhouse extends through 2024.
Nonetheless, there have been disagreements about transfers and disappointments with Roma’s results this year.
Mourinho has now been directly approached by “high management” to lead the Saudi Arabia national team although his future at the Italian club is still in doubt.
The agreement contains two options for Mourinho and £52 (€60m) each year, according to Corriere dello Sport.
At the conclusion of the first season, he would have the option of terminating the agreement or extending it until 2026, the year of the North American World Cup.
