Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, who was earlier rumoured to return as Chelsea manager, says he wants to extend his contract with his current club, according to a ESPN report.

The 49-year-old Portuguese manager, who was expected to return to England following his recent visit to London, says he is out of the race to take up managerial duties at both Chelsea and the English national team.

"I am going to sign a new contract with Real Madrid. I would like to have a place in the club's history. Real Madrid and I share a project and we are going to carry on with it. Being part of this team is a fantastic and unforgettable experience for a manager like me," Daily Mail quoted Mourinho as saying.

Mourinho, whose team currently has a winning streak of 11 games, has led Real Madrid to the top of the Spanish La Liga tables, 10 points ahead of Barcelona.

"Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I feel happy here. I feel they trust me here and I feel I have the complete support of the directors and all the fans. I see my future as achieving more things with Real Madrid and better results that lead to us winning trophies," he added.
