Jose Mourinho rejects lucrative offer from a Chinese club to make him highest paid coach.

Former Manchester United and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has rejected a lucrative offer to manage in China after has it that he has been approached by Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande with a contract offer worth around £88m.

It would have made him the world's best-paid manager but Mourinho wanted to stay in Europe with his family. Guangzhou is currently managed by Italian World Cup winner Fabio Cannavaro.

Mourinho has been out of work since he was sacked by Manchester United last December, but sometime in March 2019, he hinted that he wants to return to management this year, but is waiting for the right project.

"I know exactly what I don't want…I know what I want, in terms of not the specific club but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job," he said then.
