A move to London was given further credence this week when Manuel Alvarez, president of Canillas - the club of Mourinho's son - said the 50-year-old had told him he would not be at Madrid next season.
Mourinho said: "Yes I can confirm it. He asked me if I will be able to speak to the coaches at the club next year. I don't (know if) I will be able to.
"To speak about Canillas is like speaking about what is almost a second home for me and my son. It's a great club. But they have a problem - their president loves the press and he loves attention.
"He is a fantastic person and treats me and my son very well, but he has this small problem, it's not my problem."
