Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho turned down the most expensive offer in the history of world football after he said no to two-time Asian Champions League winners Guangzhou Evergrande.
The Chinese Super League club wanted to make the Portuguese tactician the highest paid manager in the world.
Mourinho met with Guangzhou Evergrande chairman Xu Jiangyin in April when the offer was made to him.
The former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss was offered a three-year deal worth €30m on a yearly basis with €10m in bonuses totaling €100m.
Jose Mourinho is said to favour a managerial job in Europe only according to popular media channel ESPN.
Rafael Benitez recently took a similar job in China after he was offered a £12m offer by top flight side Dalian Yifang.
He left Newcastle United to take the Chinese Super League job after the Magpies failed to back him in the transfer window.
Rafael Benitez spent three years as a Newcastle United manager and he worked with little money during his time at the club.
The Spanish tactician had earlier led the Northeast club to 10th place during the 2017/18 season (first season back in the top flight) and to 13th place last season.
