Jose Mourinho Reportedly Offered £100m to Become Highest Paid Manager Ever with Saudi Arabia National Team

Current AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho could potentially become the highest paid manager in football history after receiving a staggering £100m ($125m) offer to manage the Saudi Arabia national team [1][2].

Mourinho, who has been with AS Roma since 2021, currently earns €7 million per year at the Italian club [3]. The Portuguese manager has a successful track record, having led Roma to its first-ever European trophy last season by winning the UEFA Conference League [5]. He is currently ranked as the third highest paid manager in Italy, following Max Allegri and Simone Inzaghi [5].

The lucrative £100m offer from Saudi Arabia is reportedly for a two-year contract, which, if accepted, would make Mourinho the highest paid manager ever in football [3]. This substantial offer reflects Saudi Arabia’s ambition to elevate their national team’s performance on the world stage.

Mourinho, often referred to as “The Special One,” has a decorated career in football management, having coached top clubs such as Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur. It remains to be seen whether the celebrated manager will accept the enticing offer and make a move to the Middle East to lead the Saudi Arabian national team.

In the meantime, Mourinho continues to focus on his duties at AS Roma, with the Italian club currently competing in Serie A and other domestic competitions.
