Inter Milan chief Ernesto Paolillo insists the club is counting on Jose Mourinho for next season.

Mourinho has been linked with a return to England at Manchester City this week after his clash with the Italian journalists' union.

“The rapport with Mourinho is good and we will continue with him next season as well,” insisted Paolillo.

“We are doing well in Serie A and his future is not tied to victory in the Champions League.

“It is an objective, but we know how difficult that is. Only one team among the best in Europe can lift the trophy, so it cannot all be wrapped up in that Final.”
