Rick Karsdorp’s predicament at AS Roma: Mourinho looking for replacement in Barcelona

The final verdict on Rick Karsdorp’s predicament at AS Roma has yet to be spoken. On Sunday, the Italian media focused on the ramifications of coach José Mourinho’s savage punch.

After a dismal match against Sassuolo eleven days ago, the Portuguese slammed the former Feyenoord defender. The Portuguese believes Karsdorp’s substitution would have betrayed his teammates due to his disrespectful attitude.

The comments were widely reported in the Italian press. Although Mourinho did not speak Karsdorp’s name, it was evident to his teammates and the press that it was all about the Dutchman.

Karsdorp, who got irate fans after Mourinho’s comments, should have reported for training on Sunday, according to Sky Sport Italia, reporter Gianluca di Marzio, and La Corriere dello Sport. That would not have been done by a Dutchman. AS Roma will depart for Japan shortly, but the chances of Karsdorp accompanying them are slim.

After all, the Dutchman had fled to the Netherlands following the events. Meanwhile, he is still under contract until mid-2025. Mourinho, who declared in his rant that Karsdorp must look for a new club, is thought to be looking for a replacement. In turn, Juventus would aim to retake control of Karsdorp. As a result, the media sees Sunday’s new beginning as a prelude to “an unavoidable rupture.”

Rick Karsdorp’s predicament: Héctor Bellerin the solution?

According to Italian media, AS Roma is seeking a new right back now that Rick Karsdorp appears to be on his way out. José Mourinho appears to be mostly concerned with Spain.

According to La Gazzetta, the leading candidate is Héctor Bellerin. Last summer, the 27-year-old Spaniard left Emirates for his boyhood club Barcelona, but only signed a one-year contract. For the time being, he has little opportunity to play at Camp Nou. Xavi is thought to have given the go-ahead for a move from the right in January.

Mourinho would value Bellerin’s personality and qualities. The Portuguese has played against the defender several times in the Premier League. Real Betis, on the other hand, is hoping to sign him. If Bellern is not a viable option, lvaro Odriozola would enter the picture. The 26-year-old Spaniard is Real Madrid’s third choice at right-back. Plan C is to bring in no one and rely only on Zeki Celik, with Nicola Zalewski as backup if necessary.
