Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has twice turned down moves to Paris Saint-Germain but admits he would consider moving to the French capital should he be sacked by Blues owner Roman Abramovich.

Mourinho has previously been heavily linked with a move to the Ligue 1 champions, who have had three managers in the past three years, with Laurent Blanc the current inhabitant of the Parc des Princes hot seat.

The role at PSG has become an increasingly attractive one in recent seasons during the substantial investment made by owners Qatar Sports Investments and Mourinho said he would like to one day take over the club should he ever be shown the exit door by Chelsea.

"I turned down Paris twice," he told TF1. "I think I can say I was the first option for Leonardo. Before Carlo Ancelotti? Yes. Before Laurent Blanc? Yes. I really thought about it, but I was at Real Madrid the first time and the second time I returned to Chelsea.

"If Chelsea sack me? Yes. But, otherwise, I am unmovable," he said. "I do not want to leave. Paris is not an option, and I will not get fired because results are good.

"I am now at a club I want to be at. But football is football. There will come a day when I'm told: 'Jose, it's over!' I understand that - I am a man of football. I will respect that decision."

After leaving west London in inauspicious circumstances in 2007, Mourinho's return to Chelsea has been made possible by his improved relationship with Abramovich, with the pair having reportedly fallen out during the Portuguese manager's first spell at the club.

But speaking in February, Mourinho said: "When I left last time it was because of a few circumstances that were affecting the personal relationship, not results.

"The best way we have to try to be stable in our jobs is to try and show our owners and our clubs the way we work, and the way we organise things, the way we make the club better, improve every structure and work for the future of the club.

"Results decide the big picture. But if you work hard in the club, the club can understand if you are good or not, and whether the results will come or not.

"Roman is the owner. If he is the owner, he has to know everything that happens in this club, day by day. That's normal.

"It was a big decision for him to bring me back and a big decision for me to come back. When you commit to that decision, it's not just because we had a good personal relation and respect, but also because we agree to go in a certain direction."
