Jose Mourinho: Real Madrid exit rumours are 'nonsense'

Jose Mourinho has branded suggestions that he has agreed to leave Real Madrid this summer as 'nonsense', amid reports the Portuguese is a target for the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Mourinho's future with Real Madrid has been in doubt all season and, reports in Spain have claimed, the 50-year-old has already signed an agreement to ensure he will leave the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the campaign.

Chelsea are odds on favourites to capture the signature of their former manager when Rafael Benitez leaves Stamford Bridge, while Mourinho has been mentioned as a potential successor to Sir Alex Ferguson, should the Manchester United boss decide to lower the curtain on his Old Trafford career.

Mourinho, meanwhile, has also been touted as a replacement for ex-Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti at Paris Saint-Germain, but the former says he intends to stay with Real Madrid, and will ignore any speculation about his future.

"That's nonsense," Mourinho told RTP1.

"I have not agreed or signed anything which says I am to leave Real Madrid. The group at Real Madrid are as good as any other that I have had.

"I don't read the Spanish press, I don't watch Spanish television. It's hard to be Portuguese in Spain. Nothing affects me, nothing disturbs me, nothing motivates more than my own drive.

"I never felt that being Portuguese was either positive or negative in England or Italy."
