Jose Mourinho remained typically coy when asked if he is in the running to return as Chelsea FC manager this summer.

Maurizio Sarri’s situation at Stamford Bridge has been a strong source of speculation in recent days as the Italian continues to be linked with the Juventus job.

It remains to be seen whether Sarri will stay at Chelsea FC for another season or move on as the speculation about his future continues to mount.

Sarri led Chelsea FC to a third-placed finish in the Premier League and the Europa League title in his first campaign in charge at the west London club.

But the relatively successful campaign has not prevented him being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho was on pundit duty for beIN Sports‘s coverage of the Champions League final on Saturday night and was asked directly whether he would consider a return to Chelsea FC this summer.

But the Portuguese boss offered a blunt response, saying: “We are not here to speak about it.

“We are here to speak about this [the Champions League final] and not about us.”

Mourinho has won three Premier League titles in two stints with Chelsea FC.

He last led the Blues to Premier League glory in the 2014-15 campaign, when Chelsea FC won both the League Cup and title to complete a domestic double.
