He also said he didn’t think Manchester United would be his last job.

But ahead of his side’s Champions League tie with Benfica, Mourinho moved to quell the speculation about his future.

‘I think you English media have the answer,’ a terse Mourinho told the press in Portugal. ‘In one day it says I am going to sign a five year contract, £1billion per season. The next day you say I am leaving to go to PSG. That is the answer.

‘Nothing is happening, I am not signing a new five year contract and I am not leaving for PSG. I am not leaving United. I have a contract and that is it.’

Mourinho added: ‘I have my contract which ends in June 2019. We are in October 2017 so I don’t know what to say.

‘I told poeople, and it is true, that I am not going to end my career at United. How is it possible in modern football that any manager lasts 15/20 years in the same club. [Arsenal manager Arsene] Wenger is the last one.

‘I think I’m going to be in football 15 years more minimum, it is impossible to stay that long at one club.

‘If my career was ending in 3,4,5 years then yes, I would end my career at United.

‘Yes it’s true that I haven’t signed a new contract; but I’m also not thinking about leaving either.’
