Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim has admitted that he could be tempted away from the club in the future and has already rejected offers from elsewhere.
Jardim led the club to the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League semifinals last season but they have struggled to keep pace with Paris Saint-Germain this campaign.
