Jose Mourinho will remain at Real Madrid beyond this summer, according to the club’s director general.

Mourinho has been linked with returns to both Chelsea and Internazionale in recent weeks despite signing a four-year contract with Madrid last summer.

But Jorge Valdano insists the Portuguese coach is happy at the Bernabeu. “Mourinho has a contract for four years and says he wants to stay,” said Valdano.

“I see no reason to disbelieve him. He is the ideal coach for Real Madrid has the same hunger for our win.”

The 48-year-old manager masterminded Madrid’s 1-0 victory over bitter rivals Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final last week, securing the club’s first silverware in three seasons.

And Valdano is confident Real can conquer Barcelona again in their Champions League semi-final, and insists Madrid are still in the La Liga title race despite Pep Guardiola’s men holding an eight-point advantage over Mourinho’s side with five games left.

“We want to absolutely win the Champions League and we have not given up even in the league we will do everything to conquer the league,” added Valdano.
