Mourinho has been linked with a return to England in recent months and, following his recent visit to London, was said to be among the favourites to succeed Andre Villas-Boas at Chelsea.

However, with Madrid currently sitting ten points clear of rivals Barcelona at the top of La Liga, Mourinho has revealed he plans to extend his stay at the Bernabeu.

"I am going to sign a new contract with Real Madrid," Mourinho was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. "I would like to have a place in the club's history. 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 all the directors and fans."
