Roma prepare Fonseca offer

Roma are reported to be offering Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca a three-year deal worth €2.5m a season to become their new Coach.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Giallorossi have offered the Portuguese tactician a three-year contract with wages of €2.5m plus bonuses

The 46-year-old previously worked at Sporting Braga, where he won the Portuguese Cup, Pacos Ferreira and FC Porto, where he won the Supercup before being sacked just nine months into his stay at the Primeira Liga Giants.

Current Bologna Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic had been heavily linked with taking over at the Stadio Olimpico in recent days, as both Francesco Totti and Gianluca Petrachi were pushing for his arrival, but the Serb is leaning towards remaining in Emilia-Romagna.

The capital outfit are looking for a new Coach after they sacked Eusebio Di Francesco in March and Claudio Ranieri stepped down after his short caretaking role.

Meanwhile, Sassuolo technician Roberto De Zerbi can’t be ruled out, as both sides have an excellent relationship, while former Lazio winger and Porto tactician Sergio Conceicao is also on the list of possible candidates to become new Roma Coach.
