Jose Mourinho has moved to dampen down speculation he will one day replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United as the Real Madrid coach prepares to face the long-serving Scot and his Premier League-leading side in the Champions League, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Mourinho did however say that when he leaves Madrid he will look to return to English football, having had just over three years in charge at Chelsea, winning the Premier League twice.

But the Portuguese denied he was targeting Ferguson’s job, saying, tongue firmly in cheek, that: “No, I don’t believe so [succeed Ferguson at United]. I think we have to end our career at the same time - him at 90 and me at 70!

Mourinho added that he really does want to retire from management at the age of 70 and so has 20 years left in the profession, having also claimed: “After Real Madrid. I love everything about English football. When? We will see. Normally, it will be my next step.

The Mirror speculates that Mourinho could take his next step this summer as a consequence of a turbulent season at the Santiago Bernabeu. Having won the title last season Madrid find themselves off the pace in La Liga, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona with 15 games to go and four points behind city rivals Atletico Madrid.
