Jose Mourinho is on the verge of a sensational move to Fenerbahce, as reports suggest he has verbally agreed to a two-year contract with the Turkish Super Lig club.

Although Mourinho hasn’t arrived in Istanbul yet, the paperwork is being finalized for a deal that includes an option to extend his tenure until the summer of 2027.

Fenerbahce had an impressive season in the Super Lig, notching up 99 points and suffering only one defeat. However, they narrowly missed out on the title to their city rivals Galatasaray, which led to the departure of head coach Ismail Kartal.

Mourinho sees this opportunity as an exciting challenge, especially with Fenerbahce set to compete in the Champions League starting from the second qualifying round next season.

While Fenerbahce boasts a rich history in Turkish football, their last league triumph dates back to 2014. Mourinho, who has an illustrious managerial career with major honors won at clubs like Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Roma, aims to help Fenerbahce reclaim the domestic title.

The 61-year-old Portuguese tactician has been without a club since his departure from Roma in January, following a tenure of two and a half seasons. Notably, Mourinho holds the unique distinction of being the only manager to have won the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League.

In an interesting twist, Mourinho’s Fenerbahce squad is set to include midfielder Fred, whom he previously signed during his time at Manchester United in 2018.
