Italian reports have linked Jose Mourinho with a surprise return to Premier League

Surprisingly, José Mourinho has been linked with a return to the Premier League, this time with Newcastle.

According to Roma Live, a Rome-based media outlet, the Portuguese is not expected to stay in Rome. His contract expires in 2024 and “cannot be renewed.”

The former Chelsea manager has come under fire after recent results, in particular the defeat against rivals Lazio followed by a draw against Sassuolo.

The report states that it is unclear whether Mourinho will renew his contract, with the club lining up Thomas Tuchel as his replacement if he leaves. He also says that if Newcastle made an offer for him, “things could change” and he would most likely leave the Italian club.

This refers to Newcastle’s initial interest in Jose Mourinho when the new owners were interested in signing the Portuguese but after failing to do so they offered Eddie Howe a new deal which has been notable ever since.

The 44-year-old Englishman has led Newcastle to third place in the Premier League, losing just one of 14 league games. And they could easily have been even higher up the league had it not been for a couple of pretty frustrating draws that could easily have turned into wins. His only loss to Liverpool was also unfortunate as he conceded the winning goal in the 98th minute.

With Newcastle’s project aiming to replicate what Manchester City have done over the years, it is highly unlikely that they will consider replacing the former Bournemouth manager with Mourinho, who, to be honest, is not the same manager as someone else. once was. He may be a good option in the short term, but his uninspiring football and man-management style end up upsetting the team behind the scenes, something Newcastle would not want in their long-term project.
