Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has said he will manage Real Madrid. He just doesn't know when ...

The self-proclaimed 'special one' has been tipped to be the next person to take over the manager's role at Madrid.

He won numerous trophies while in charge of Porto and Chelsea. And while he won the Serie A last year, the Copa Italia this year, and is leading Inter into the Champions League final on May 22nd, he has said he does not like living in Italy. 

When in an interview for an Italian magazine, Mourinho said: "What they are writing that I have a foot half in Spain and half in Milan is false. It's true I will coach Real Madrid.

"I've coached a big club in England, I'm coaching a big club in Italy and I will coach one in Spain.

"I've won everything in three countries (Portugal, England and Italy), there's nothing missing for me.

"But it makes me laugh when certain club chairmen compare me to their coaches who haven't even won a Cup of Tuscany or Reggio Calabria."

Mourinho belives he has a guaranteed place at Real when ever he wants it. And while he is the best manager in the world, just because he says its going to happen doesn't mean it will.

Madrid have yet to comment on Mourinho's claims.
