Brazil are looking for a successor to the outgoing Tite, having already been linked with Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola.
Jose Mourinho is a man in demand at international level, with Brazil reportedly rivalling Portugal in pursuit of his signature.
The 59-year-old is currently employed by Serie A club Roma, who he joined in 2021 on a three-year deal.
There are reports that Mourinho is not entirely happy in the Italian capital, specifically regarding the players’ attitudes and the club’s financial constraints.
According to la Repubblica, Brazil will make a sensational move to become the new national team boss José Mourinho to replace the late Tite.
The Brazil national set-up will fly to Italy to meet Roma’s head coach – who has also been linked with the Portuguese job – and begin face-to-face talks.
The Brazilian has been linked with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who has reportedly turned to super agent Jorge Mendes to help them find a new head coach.
