The Special One has seen his team's chances of playing next year's UEFA Champions League fading away, and the club is already set to take matters into their own hands.

Jose Mourinho's possible sacking is no secret to anyone who has seen Tottenham recently, and in that light, the team's hierarchy seems to have made up their minds on who should take the team's reigns beyond this season. 

According to a report by Rai Sport, the Special One will be sacked as Spurs' boss by the end of the season if they are not capable of earning a spot in next year's UEFA Champions League or if they don't win the Carabao Cup final later this month. Hence, Daniel Levy and his staff have devoted themselves to find a suitable replacement for Mourinho, identifying a former Chelsea boss as the best option for the job.

That man, according to the Italian network, is none other than Maurizio Sarri, who has been unemployed since he was sacked by Juventus last summer. Sarri's playing style was quite a success at Napoli, but he was not able to replicate it with the Blues as intended, since he only won the UEFA Europa League with the Blues in 2019.

The report also states that Sarri has also been linked to a shocking return to Napoli, where he would replace Gennaro Gattuso at the helm. If both clubs bidded for his services, Sarri's previous history with Napoli would reportedly see him joining I Partenopei once again.

Be that as it may, Mourinho will still has eight games left to turn things around. Let's wait and see if the Special One's days are over with the North London side.
