Monaco move to blow Chelsea out of water in Mourinho battle

Chelsea could lose out to AS Monaco in the battle for Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

The Mirror says Mourinho has received an offer from mega-rich Monaco to make him the highest-paid football manager in the world.

Monaco's Russian billionaire owner, Dmitry Rybolovlev, is determined to turn the rebuilding French club into a major force in European football.

Mourinho is demanding £12million-a-year to go back to Chelsea, and Rybolovlev wants to gazump his countryman Roman Abramovich in a major battle of wills.

Wealthy Paris Saint-Germain are also keen to land Mourinho and have made enquiries about the Special One, who is set to leave Real this summer.
