Real Madrid sporting director has denied speculation that Los Merengues are looking at Jose Mourinho to replace Fabio Capello.
Jose Mourinho’s future at Stamford Bridge has become a matter of intense speculation in recent times.
While the official version remains that both parties want to continue their association, the grapevine suggests that either Mourinho, or Abramovich, will decide to call time by the summer.
Inter Milan were the first club to be linked with the former Porto coach, but Mancini’s winning run has helped cool those rumours down.
Real Madrid have been the latest club linked, with reports suggesting that he will replace Fabio Capello at the Bernabeu.
However, sporting director Pedja Mijatovic denied any such move was being considered.
“I know Mourinho has been mentioned,” he told Sky Sports News. “I also know Del Bosque has been mentioned. However, what I know for sure is that our coach is Fabio Capello, and we are happy with him.
“All this talk of new signings, players leaving, new coaches, is just made up by some journalists, and I don’t think it is very important.”
