Jose Mourinho: I thought a lot about accepting PSG's offer


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he twice turned down an offer from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Portuguese revealed that he was first approached by the reigning French champions when in charge at Real Madrid with a new offer made last summer before he accepted to return at Chelsea.

"I knew about the project [at Paris Saint-Germain] even before it began. I was Leonardo's first choice [ahead of Carlo Ancelotti]," Mourinho told TF1's Telefoot.

"And when Carlo left [in 2013], they made me another offer. I have rejected them twice.

"I thought a lot about it. But the first time, there was Real Madrid and the second time there was Chelsea.

"I want to stay at Chelsea for as many years as possible. I have no other project than managing at Chelsea where I want to be."
