Mourinho Wants To ‘See Out’ Manchester United Contract
With rumours of a return to Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho has stated he is “happy” at Manchester United and wants to “see out” his contract at the club.
Reports claim the La Liga giants want the Portuguese manager back to replace under-pressure boss Julen Lopetegui.
But the 55-year-old, whose Old Trafford contract runs until 2020, said: “I am happy here.
“All I am thinking about at the moment is Manchester United.”
Mourinho’s own job was under question earlier this month when a newspaper said he was to be sacked regardless of the result against Newcastle.
But United came from 2-0 down to beat the Magpies 3-2, courtesy of Alexis Sanchez‘s last-minute header at Old Trafford.
Despite only being appointed in the summer, Lopetegui’s job at the Bernabeu is already becoming increasingly precarious with the club on a run of four defeats in five games.
Before United’s Champions League game against Juventus on Tuesday, Mourinho was asked if he could make a return to Real, where he won the Spanish title and Copa del Rey between 2010 and 2013.
Mourinho added: “I am happy to see out my contract to the very last day of that contract and I would like to stay after my contract runs out as well.”
