Mou Eyes Middle East Riches, But Wants Starry Arrivals: “Special One” Demands Big Names Before Shabab Deal

The “Special One” eyes a new adventure in the desert, but with a twist. Jose Mourinho, freshly unemployed after his Roma departure, is reportedly open to joining Saudi Pro League side Al-Shabab, but on one intriguing condition: he wants star names.

According to multiple sources, Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes has confirmed the 59-year-old’s initial interest in the Shabab offer. However, the self-proclaimed “Special One” isn’t just looking for a paycheck. He’s seeking to reshape the Saudi club’s fortunes with a touch of his signature star power.

This demand comes despite Al-Shabab’s current mid-table position and roster that already boasts experienced players like Ever Banega, Yannick Carrasco, and Roman Saiss. But for Mourinho, it seems bigger names are necessary to ignite his desert adventure.

This conditional interest throws open a whole new can of worms. Would Al-Shabab, currently 11th in the league, be willing to splash the cash on marquee signings to meet Mourinho’s demands? Can they attract big names to a team not currently competing for major honors? Only time will tell.
