Jose Mourinho: I Am Happy At Inter

The coach has done his best to quash all the rumours about him going to Real Madrid...

Inter coach Jose Mourinho has tried to end speculation regarding his future by stating he is staying in Italy and not moving to Real Madrid.

The coach has been constantly linked with the Spanish side, ever since presidential candidate Florentino Perez underlined his intent of coming back into power.

Reports emerged that the coach had received an offer from the Bernabeu, but he did not take it further. In any case, Los Merengues attempts to tempt Mourinho now seem futile, as the coach insists he is only interested in the Nerazzurri, for the time being at least.

"I don't want to talk about this argument. I have a contract here and I am happy with what we have done and what we are doing for the future," the Inter coach told Sky Sport Italia.

"I am an honest person, I always have been and I told Massimo Moratti about the offer. If I wanted to go, then I would have, without saying anything.

"The reason I said 99.9 percent, and not 99 percent, is because there would have been more space to talk about this argument.

"There is a small temptation, and I will not hide that. I have already refused Real Madrid once during my career."

Another Inter star who has been linked with an exit is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He too has been tipped to move to Spain. But Mourinho feels it will be difficult.

"His ticket to leave is not easy to pay and it will be difficult to buy," concluded the coach.

Inter head into their last two matches of the season as champions and with Mourinho seemingly safe as coach, as he keeps Real Madrid at bay.
