Roma was the first major team in Europe to make a move within the great castling of coaches. The whole of the Italian capital, at the beginning of May, publicly announced the departure of Paulo Fonseca to bet on a project headed by José Mourinho. After his irregular journey through Tottenham, the experienced Portuguese will return to Serie A, a territory where he won everything that stood in his way during his stay at Inter (between 2008 and 2010 he won two Scudettos, an Italian Cup, an Italian Super Cup and a Champions League League).
The former Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United signed a three-season bond (until June 30, 2024) and has already begun to move to try to renew the squad. The many he finished in seventh position in the last Serie A, which earned him a place in the next Conference League.
As reported by the newspaper The print, the Portuguese picked up the phone to seduce an old acquaintance: Cristiano Ronaldo, whose future is in the air today at Juventus. They both agreed on the White House Real Madrid, where they won three titles (a League, a King’s Cup and a Spanish Super Cup).
Despite his very good numbers (36 goals and 4 assists in 44 presentations), the Old lady would have in mind to put together a project focused on young footballers and, with the endorsement of Massimiliano Allegri, who will replace Andrea Pirlo, the club would seek to carry out some kind of barter in the next pass market.
The newspaper speculates that businessman Jorge Mendes (represents the coach and the scorer) it could be the key to successful negotiations.
At the head of “Special One” is the idea of forming a team with a 4-2-3-1 as the main scheme, a tactical arrangement that most of the squad knows very well since they used it with Luciano Spalletti, Eusebio Di Francesco and at the beginning of the Fonseca era (he reached the semi-finals of the Europa League varying to 3-4-2-1).
Of the current squad, Mou is devoted to Nicolò Zaniolo. The young 21-year-old midfielder will be in optimal physical condition for the start of next season and the Portuguese wanted to hire him on his adventures in England. In defense, he will put chips on Lorenzo Pellegrini. Other players to his liking are Roger Ibanez, Jordan Veretout, Bryan Cristante and Marash Kumbulla.
It is worth noting that Cristiano Ronaldo is not the only ex he has in his sights. At the beginning of the week, the newspaper I read He stated that the coach also seeks to convince Eden Hazard, whom he met in his time at Chelsea and who is unable to settle in Real Madrid.
