Mourinho will also have the opportunity to go head-to-head with Carlo Ancelotti, a coach for whom he has plenty of admiration.
The ex-Chelsea boss has a track record in winning European cup competitions which has eluded Juventus in the last 13 years.
La Gazzetta notes that “two parties are pressing Juventus to take on José Mourinho as their new coach. One, logically, is his representative Jorge Mendes and the other appears to be Cristiano Ronaldo, who has put their differences at Real Madrid to one side and backs the appointment of his compatriot.”
