Jose Mourinho sees 'no reason' to leave Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho says he is not planning to leave Real Madrid this summer as he closes in on winning a league title in a fourth different country.

Real are seven points clear in Spain's La Liga, but Mourinho has been linked to Chelsea and Manchester City.

"At the moment my future is not important, but I think I will be here next season," the Real manager said.

"I have a contract with the club and no reason to leave. It is better to stay at a club for four or five years."

The Portuguese was appointed in May 2010, signing a four-year deal, but reports earlier this year claimed he wanted to return to England in the summer.

Mourinho said: "At the end of the season I will have time to speak with the players and the directors and we will decide what is best for me, for the club and for the squad."

After Saturday's 2-1 victory over arch-rivals Barcelona, Mourinho is on the brink of winning the league in a fourth country, after leading FC Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan to domestic titles in Portugal, England and Italy respectively.

Mourinho's managerial record

  • Porto: 2 league titles, 1 Portuguese Cup, 1 Champions League, 1 Uefa Cup
  • Chelsea : 2 league titles, 1 FA Cup
  • Inter Milan : 2 league titles, 1 Coppa Italia, 1 Champions League
  • Real Madrid : 1 Copa del Rey

He is also chasing Champions League success with a third club after triumphs with Porto in 2004 and Inter in 2010, although Real will have to overcome a 2-1 first-leg deficit when they face Bayern Munich in Wednesday's semi-final.

"Overall I have not been lucky in semi-finals of the Champions League," he said.

"I lost one with Chelsea [in 2005] due to a goal that wasn't a goal; the ball didn't cross the line. In [2007] we lost on penalties and I lost the semi-final last season because of what everyone knows.

"I don't know if the Champions League is more important than the league, because the best team always wins the league and this isn't always the case in Europe.

"However, the final of the Champions League is the most important thing in football. Tomorrow is almost like a long-awaited final, but I see calmness in the players. I don't like an excess of emotion, nor a lack of it."

Mourinho is also keeping an eye on Tuesday's clash between Chelsea and Barcelona.

"If it were Barcelona against Milan or Arsenal or any other team then it wouldn't matter to me who progressed - I would want the best team to win," he said.

"But because it is Chelsea I feel slightly different. I would like it if the luck went to my old players."
