Mourinho is currently enjoying success as Real Madrid boss, having led them to La Liga glory last term, but he is eyeing a return to England in the future.

He has been linked with a host of management jobs, Manchester United and Manchester City among them, and he is ready to return to a country he left in 2007 when parting company with Chelsea amid reports of a rift with club owner Roman Abramovich.

"When I speak about it in Spain, they turn my words immediately," Mourinho told Sky Sports News. "But I cannot deny what is clear in my mind - after Real Madrid, England. That's for sure.

"But I keep saying the same - I know clearly that it's where I want to be."

Asked about his ties to Chelsea, Mourinho said: "I'm Blue - I'm a London Blue - but I am a professional."
