West Ham may relaunch their pursuit of Jose Mourinho, who is expected to depart Roma in the summer. It is anticipated that “Special One” Jose Mourinho will terminate his tenure at Italian powerhouse Roma at the end of the current campaign.
The Portuguese’s contract expires at the conclusion of the 2023–2024 Serie A season, and it seems unlikely that he would extend it, especially given that he is having greater trouble motivating his Giallorossi players this year.
In fact, TeamTalk indicates that he will undoubtedly depart the team in the summer.
The team is now eight points behind leaders Inter Milan in seventh place in the Italian premier league.
A return to the Premier League is a real possibility, therefore there’s little doubt that a new task lies ahead.
LaRoma24 reported on an incredible offer that West Ham reportedly offered to Mourinho back in March. Mourinho was flattered by the contact but declined it because he was still concentrating on Roma.
Now that things have obviously changed, and according to Football Insider, the Hammers are actively searching for a Moyes replacement, it may be a good time for Mourinho to resume his love affair with the English premier league in a place he is familiar with.
Certainly, a move for the Special One makes perfect sense if West Ham wants to keep moving forward and avoid having their Europa Conference League title win turn into just another “once in a lifetime” event.
To satisfy Mourinho, the ambition will undoubtedly require financial investment in the team, but as the club demonstrated during the previous transfer window, funds will be made available for the appropriate players.
