Mourinho reiterates Premier League desire

Jose Mourinho has once again hinted at a return to the Premier League, but insists he will not break his contract at Real Madrid.

‘The Special One’ has constantly flirted with the idea of a return to England, and is unsurprisingly linked with the biggest-and-best jobs the game has to offer.

However, the former Chelsea boss has insisted he has no intention of leaving his post at the Santiago Bernabeu, and hopes to remain at the club until his current deal expires in 2016.

"If we don't win the Champions League this year, we will win it next season. If I won it would I leave Real? No. I will only leave if I am thrown out,” he told France Football.

"When I sign a contract, I sign it with the intention of fulfilling it, with the intention of building and laying the foundations for my successor.

"Would I go back to England one day? Yes, for sure. Without trying to predict the future, I admit I would go back to England but only after I am finished at Real. No earlier than 2016. I like it where I am, I am fine here. That is the truth."

Mourinho is one of the most successful managers in club football history, enjoying great success at FC Porto before moving to Chelsea in 2004.

After three seasons and no Champions League trophy, his time at Stamford Bridge came to a controversial end, but Inter Milan were quick to snap up the 49-year-old.

Another European Cup followed at the San Siro, as well as two Serie ‘A’ titles, but he opted to leave Italy for Real Madrid in 2010, going head-to-head with rival Pep Guardiola.

And, after a disappointing first season behind the Blaugrana, the mercurial manager guided Los Blancos to their first La Liga title in four years, breaking a number of Spanish records in the process.

His long-term future appears to be tied to the Premier League however, and a number of clubs will happily put their hat in the ring to land Mourinho in four years time.
