MADRID:


Speculation over Jose Mourinho’s future intensified yesterday after he reportedly told youth team coaches he would not be manager of Real Madrid next season.


Spanish sports daily AS raised the prospect of the Portuguese’s departure from the nine-time European champions in an interview with Manuel Alvarez, club president of Canillas, where the Real boss delivered a coaching master class on Monday.

“Mourinho told us that next year he wouldn’t be able to give the master class, that it would be impossible because he would no longer be here,” Alvarez was quoted as saying. “He said it half jokingly, half seriously.“He didn’t tell us where he was going because we didn’t ask him any further questions.”

On Sunday another Spanish paper, El Pais, linked Mourinho to a return to his former club Chelsea. Mourinho’s contract with Real, who face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semi-final first-leg next Tuesday, runs until 2016.
