‘That’s a question for the director’ – Mourinho hints at selling key player to Tottenham

    Roma head coach Jose Mourinho is not completely convinced that Nicolo Zaniolo can stay at the club until the end of the transfer window.

    The current contract of the attacking midfielder expires in the summer of 2024, and the Roman club, in case the contract is not extended, have to think about selling the player.

    According to the Daily Express, Roma have already rejected loan offers with a possible buyout clause.

    Jose Mourinho responded in a pre-match press conference about the 23-year-old’s future.

    ‘Zaniolo looks very sharp and physically agile, as it’s not easy for a player like him to maintain that intensity for 90 minutes. He deserves the credit for training hard and having the right motivation.’

    ‘If he remains or not, that’s a question for the director, not for me. If you ask me, I’d love him to remain, obviously. He is an important player for us, a key piece of the puzzle to bring together all the characteristics of our players.’
