Mourinho linked with Roma

The Corriere dello Sport claims that Roma could be a possible destination for Jose Mourinho if he leaves Real Madrid.

The tactician's future in Spain is in doubt after so far losing the battle with Barcelona for La Liga supremacy.

Mourinho fuelled the fire over talk of a summer move yesterday by suggesting he'd return to the Premiership or Serie A should he leave his present role.

"If Real Madrid were to sack me, I wouldn't go and coach Malaga," Mourinho noted. "I would go to a big club in England or Italy."

Former sides Chelsea and Inter were instantly paired as options for the Portuguese maestro, but Roma are now also being tentatively mentioned.

The Giallorossi are seemingly just months away from being taken over by American businessman Thomas DiBenedetto.

Although it is believed that the prospective new owner would want Carlo Ancelotti to replace Vincenzo Montella at the end of the season, Mourinho may now also be on his list.
