Mourinho quiet on Real link

INTER Milan boss Jose Mourinho insists he has had no contact with Real Madrid and has no plans to discuss his future until after the Champions League final on May 22.

Mourinho is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2012 but speculation has continually linked the former Chelsea man with a move to Real Madrid.

However, he said he is not planning his future beyond the end of this season.

“My immediate goal at the moment is to beat Siena to secure the Scudetto and another very near goal is that we do the same against Bayern Munich to lift the European Cup,” he told Spanish daily AS.

“The rest we’ll see. I told my agent, Jorge Mendes, I will not discuss the matter at least until May 23 - after the Champions League final.

“Of course part of my plan is to train in Spain, and maybe also be Portugal coach some day - but that’s when I’m old, maybe in 15 or 20 years.

When asked if Madrid had been in contact recently he replied: “I have not,” he said. “Personally, I only speak with Inter.”
