Jose Mourinho declined the offer $112 million from China

The Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho said no to the invitation of the Chinese billionaire Xu Jiayin to lead Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao.

Many major sports newspapers such as Sky Sports, ESPN or Telegraph reported on July 7th that coach Jose Mourinho refused a 100 million Euro (about 112 million USD) offer from the Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao corporation owner .

Xu Jiayin is willing to pay Jose Mourinho $ 35 million each season - almost double the salary of the 56-year-old coach at Manchester United ($ 19 million per season). Jose Mourinho also has the right to choose a contract term, but still refuses to continue his peak career in Europe.

Jose Mourinho met Xu Jiayin, who has a total fortune of $ 33 billion under Forbes - in April 2019 in London. Both talked about the possibility of Jose Mourinho going to Guangzhou to work.

A few days ago, Jose Mourinho announced that he wanted to continue leading a big team. He aims to conquer the third Champions League title. But the big teams have no need to replace the coach, which makes his future still a question mark.

Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United in December 2018, but was compensated for $ 25.1 million. He announced a break until the summer of 2019. The 2004 and 2010 Champions League champions have been linked to lead Newcastle United in the Premier League.
