Former Man United manager offered deal to join Ronaldo’s Al Nassr
Al Nassr have sacked Rudi Garcia amid dressing room conflict and underwhelming showings in the league.
The former Roma boss failed to take the side to the next level despite the much-talked-about arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored 11 times in 10 league appearances. With their goalless draw over the weekend, Al Nassr now sit second in the league, three points behind table-toppers Al-Ittihad.
Now, they are looking for a new manager, and according to Spanish outlet AS, Al Nassr have set their sights on Jose Mourinho.
Roma are enjoying an impressive season in both the league and Europe under the Portuguese, who’s hoping to bring Champions League nights back to Rome. A top-four finish is a real possibility with the Giallorossi currently occupying the third spot in Serie A. They are also in the quarter-finals of the Europa League and will face Feyenoord away from home in the first leg on Thursday night.
Former Man United manager offered Al Nassr role
As such, it’s not going to be easy to hold any concrete talks let alone convince Mourinho to leave his current club. After disappointing spells at Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, the Inter and Chelsea legend appears to be at home in Rome and have already lifted a trophy – Europa Conference League.
However, according to the report, the two-time Champions League winner has been offered €100m for two seasons to join Al Nassr.
The opportunity to become the highest-paid manager in the world and reunite with Ronaldo, who was his talisman at Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013, could certainly be hard to resist.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who succeeded Mourinho at Man United in 2018, is also being considered for a new job. The Norwegian coach is reportedly on Club Brugge’s list of options to replace Scott Parker.
