Monaco made a startling approach for Jose Mourinho on Tuesday but saw a staggering £35million bid rejected, according to a shareholder Alessandro Proto. 
 
Alessandro Proto claims he met Roman Abramovich in London in a bid to prise away Chelsea's beleaguered manager.

The Russian rejected the £35m offer on a day his manager insisted he would remain in London until 2019.
 
A statement was released by Proto's company, Proto enterprises, to a spanish news agency stating the meeting had taken place in London earlier in the day.
