José Mourinho has poured cold water on reports claiming that he is poised to take charge of Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

The mega-rich French side have been linked with a big-money swoop for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo – and have been reported to be keen to snap up Los Blancos boss Mourinho.

But the Portuguese coach, who has made no secret of his desire to return to coaching in the Premier League in the future, says that he does not expect to take charge of the Ligue 1 club.

“PSG have a great coach [Carlo Ancelotti], they have a director of football [Leonardo] that is also my friend and a president who I have known for a long time, and who is very passionate about football,” Mourinho told French radio station RMC Sport.

“There are a lot of Portuguese people in Paris and a lot of football fans. They have all the ingredients for success. It’ll be good for Europe to have a city like Paris in the elite of football, I think this project is going to work.

“But I don’t think I will coach PSG. Success will come to them with Ancelotti and Leonardo, they don’t need another coach. I expect everything will go well for Carlo and PSG.”
