Mourinho, who has been in charge of some of the biggest clubs in Europe, is set to take over a team that finished second in the Super Lig — three points behind champions and Istanbul rivals Galatasaray.

If he is appointed, Mourinho would replace Turkish boss Ismail Kartal, who oversaw just one loss in the league, but six draws proved to be costly in the title race.

Mourinho, who has won trophies with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United, will be tasked with helping Fenerbahce to win their first league title since the 2013-14 season.

The 61-year-old also helped Roma to clinch their first European trophy when they won the third-tier Europa Conference League in 2022 while he also guided them to the Europa League final the following year, losing to Sevilla on penalties.

But he was sacked in January this year when Roma were ninth in Serie A. He was replaced by former Italy player Daniele De Rossi and Roma eventually finished sixth to qualify for the Europa League.
