Jose Mourinho has spoken about his Chelsea future and 'the Special One' claims he is happy to stay at the club for at least the next 10 years.
Mourinho is in his second spell at Chelsea and he is hoping his return to the Blues will be marked with silverware by winning the Premier League title for the first time since 2010.
"I would [be happy to stay], for me the most important thing is to be happy,” said Mourinho speaking to BT Sport ahead of Chelsea’s game against Everton.
Mourinho added: “I like the club, I like the players, I like the fans, I like the Premier League a lot."
"In some moments I don’t understand a few things, but that doesn’t change my fantastic feeling about the Premier League. I’m very, very happy. If somebody tells me I’m going to make ten years at Chelsea, I would say yes.”

The Portuguese manager guided Chelsea to their first title in 50 years during his first spell as well as collecting the League Cup. However, the 52-year-old left the club reportedly due to a rift with owner Roman Abramovich.
Mourinho is notorious for his mind games and claims his side are aiming for top three, but is aware the title is theirs to lose.
“This season our first objective, is again, to finish top four or three, because three goes direct to Champions League," he added.
"This is the first objective, but when you are doing as well as we are doing, in this moment we think that we can win the title."
Chelsea have one of the strongest squads on the planet and were busy in the January transfer window. The addition of Juan Cuadrado bolsters their already impressive team and, considering they sold an un-wanted Andre Schurrle to pay for the move, it was some very smart business.
However, despite Chelsea's impressive bench and youth system, Mourinho still clams their squad is not big enough.
The Chelsea boss said: “We have a very short squad, we don’t have a squad like other teams in the Premier League with options, options, options. We rely a lot on this group of players which we have.
“Last year we did well, but not well enough to win silverware. The players that stay in the team from season to season give us the stability and the spine, the structure of what we want."
Title race already wrapped up?
Chelsea are seven points clear at the top of the league ahead of rivals Manchester City with 14 games remaining.
The Blues face Everton at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night whilst City are at the Britannia Stadium for a tough contest against Stoke. If City slip up again, the title race will be all but over and Mourinho will get his wish of silverware on his return to the Bridge.
