The Chelsea FC manager, Jose Mourinho has reportedly turned down a massive pay rise to extend his stay at Chelsea, according to Daily Star. The Special One enjoyed a fabulous campaign last term, guiding the Blues to a domestic double – Capital One Cup and Premier League.
Though he has agreed a new four-year deal, The Sun suggest he will still be on the same £8.5million salary. The only subtle difference they suggest, is that Mourinho’s new deal will run for two more years which means he will stay at Stamford Bridge until 2019.
A source close to Mourinho told the paper: “It has been an easy deal to do. Jose said he’s happy on the same money as before so we’re just extending the contract by two years. Everyone’s delighted. I don’t need a contract, I don’t need a pay rise. I stay as long as Mr Abramovich wants me!” He said.
