Paulo Fonseca will leave Roma if he fails to qualify for the Champions League and three candidates could replace the Portuguese coach monitored by Napoli.
The Giallorossi lost 2-0 against Napoli on Sunday and according to several reports in Italy, Fonseca will leave if he fails to finish in the top four.
His contract expires in June, but a clause would grant his permanence at the Stadio Olimpico with a Champions League placement.
However, the Giallorossi are now five points off fourth-placed Atalanta and have failed to win against any of the top six teams this season.
La Gazzetta dello Sport writes Maurizio Sarri and Massimiliano Allegri are the leading candidates to take over at the club, should Fonseca leave.
According to the report, Allegri has already expressed his appreciation for the Friedkins’ project, but his economic demands may be an obstacle.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Julian Nagelsmann is also on the Giallorossi’s radars, while La Gazzetta dello Sport reports both Benfica and Napoli are monitoring Fonseca.
