Roma have already invested more than €100m in new signings since José Mourinho arrived in the capital, but the coach is still not happy with the team and is planning a new revolution over the summer.
The Giallorossi were the biggest spenders in Serie A during the summer transfer window and La Gazzetta dello Sport highlights how the Friedkins have already invested more than €100m in new signings since the Special One moved to the Stadio Olimpico.
The sum includes transfer fees and salaries. During the last two transfer windows, Roma signed Tammy Abraham for €42m, Rui Patricio for €11m, Matias Vina for €13m, Eldor Shomurodov for €20m and Sergio Oliveira on loan with an option to buy for €12m.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles also joined the Giallorossi in January on a free loan move from Arsenal.
According to the report, Roma owners will need to make even more investments to make the team more competitive at the end of the season. José Mourinho is unhappy with the squad’s depth and overall quality and has publicly criticised his players over the last few weeks. The Special One expects to see more new faces join the Stadio Olimpico at the end of the current campaign.
Roma sit seventh in the Serie A table and are six points off a Champions League placement. They have been eliminated from the Coppa Italia and the Conference League seems to be Mourinho’s only opportunity to lift a piece of silverware in his first season in the capital, waiting for another revolution in 2022-23.
