Jose Mourinho to be handed £60m summer transfer warchest by Roma to lead club back into Champions League

ROMA will hand incoming boss Jose Mourinho a £60million warchest in a bid for a Champions League return.

That's according to Italian outlet corrieredellosport, with Tottenham's' Eric Dier and Wolves keeper Rui Patricio reported targets.

It's also claimed ex-Spurs chief Mourinho has identified players he is ready to offload, especially in defence.

That rearguard shake-up could see exits for Brazilians Bruno Peres and Juan Jesus, Argentinian Federico Fazio and Italy left-back Davide Santon.

A new stopper is thought to be high up Mourinho's list of priorities.

Calciomercato believe third-choice Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero and Borussia Monchengladbach's Switzerland No1 Yann Sommer are in contention.

Italy legend Gianluigi Buffon, 43, has also been mentioned as he prepares to leave Juventus this summer.

Mourinho's Portuguese compatriot Patricio could be in the frame too, following three impressive years with Wolves.


The 92-cap star's contract runs out next year.

And at 33, his £8.6million valuation would not deter Mourinho.

Further forward, versatile England ace Dier has been the Spurs player most commonly linked with a Mourinho reunion.
