José Mourinho says he wants to extend his stay at Manchester United.

Speaking before the clash of the Champions League on Tuesday night with Juventus, the Portuguese was asked if he would like to return to Real Madrid.

"No," he said. "My future is here, I have a contract and until the end of my contract I only think of Manchester United."

The Mourinho agreement extends until 2020, with the option of another year. "I would also like to stay after my contract is finished," he added.

The comments of the 55-year-old appear in the midst of uncertainty about the future of the current head of Real Madrid, Julen Lopetegui.

The defeat at home to Levante on Saturday left the European champions languishing in seventh place in La Liga, but speaking before Tuesday's game against Plzen, Lopetegui insisted he would fight for his position.

"I am seeing the situation as always, I carry out my day to day as usual and that is what is under our control," he said. & # 39; If you want to see a defeated coach, then do not look here.

The Portuguese also ruled out returning to the former Real Madrid club in the future.

"From my point of view, we have a game tomorrow and we are eager to do it and we will do it with total commitment and motivation.

& # 39; I'm not thinking of anything other than tomorrow's game.

"It has been assumed as fact and eliminated from what I have read, but what I have done is analyze and prepare myself for the rival, I am not thinking about anything else, which is my responsibility," he said.

"I'm here right now, I can not confirm anything else now." Tomorrow I will be the coach.

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui is already under pressure for his work at the Bernabéu.

Meanwhile, Mourinho also diverted a question about Paul Pogba against former club Juventus.

He said: & # 39; I do not like this press conference. I do not want to talk about Pogba, I do not want to talk about people, I do not want to talk to Spanish journalists because they are only interested in Real Madrid and Ronaldo.

"Now I'm going to play against one of the big clubs in the world, one of the biggest candidates to win the competition, that's what motivates me, that's what brings me here and this press conference goes in another direction, so If I go in another direction, I also want to go in another direction. No, I mean it.

Manchester United will be without Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones, Scott McTominay, Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez and Diogo Dalot for the match that will see Cristiano Ronaldo return to Old Trafford.

"Cristiano is one of the best players of all time," said Mourinho. "And nobody can say it any other way, he's one of the best players of all time."

The press conference was not without humor. At one point, Mourinho was asked a question in Portuguese.

The manager is currently waiting to know if he will be punished for the presumed oath of a camera in his mother tongue after United's dramatic 3-2 victory over Newcastle.

"The last time I spoke in Portuguese was in trouble," he replied.
