Jose Mourinho is reportedly concerned about the slow progress of Roma’s transfer market and he’s pushing for some reinforcements ahead of the pre-season training camp.
The Portuguese coach is keen to continue his work building a serious project in the Italian capital and he wants a strong starting 11 to build off of, able to compete for a top four finish next season. He’s in constant talks with sporting director Tiago Pinto and he wants multiple signings to arrive in time for the pre-season training camp on July 5.
As detailed by La Repubblica, Mourinho is restless watching the other teams carrying out transfer market moves whilst his Roma remains stationary. He does understand the club’s budgetary restrictions but had also hoped that a little more investment would’ve came following the Conference League victory.
Roma must sell before they can buy, and everything seemingly starts with Nicolo Zaniolo. Mourinho has already lost Henrikh Mkhitaryan, which he didn’t take well, and his only arrival so far is Nemanja Matic, although Lille’s Mehmet Zeki Celik is incredibly close to joining as well.
The Portuguese coach also wants a new defender, two new midfielders and a winger, as well as a new forward if Nicolo Zaniolo leaves.
