Jose Mourinho has effectively ruled himself out of the race to manage either Chelsea or England by promising to sign a new deal at Real Madrid.

The 49-year-old revealed: ‘I am going to sign a new contract with Real Madrid. I would like to have a place in the club’s history.’

Mourinho, whose side are 10 points clear of Barcelona before Saturday night’s match at Real Betis, is on the brink of becoming the first manager to win a league title in four major countries.

He had dropped hints recently that he wanted to return to the Barclays Premier League and, after patching up his differences with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, was among the favourites to take charge at Stamford Bridge following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas.

But he said: ‘Real Madrid and I share a project and we are going to carry on with it. Being part of this team is a fantastic and unforgettable experience for a manager like me.

‘Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I feel happy here. I feel they trust me here and I feel I have the complete support of the directors and all the fans.

‘I see my future as achieving more things with Real Madrid and better results that lead to us winning trophies.’
