Reveals: Mourinho has no plans to sign contract extension with Man U, the way is on to PSG

Jose Mourinho has revealed he has no immediate plans to sign a contract extension with Manchester United.

Mourinho raised speculation about his future by gushing about Paris St Germain and confirming United will not be his last job.

But the United boss attempted to clarify his comments ahead of tomorrow's Champions League match against Benfica by claiming he is going nowhere - and has no plans to sign a new deal.

Mourinho’s current £15million-a-year deal still has over 18 months to run.

 “I think you English media have the answer for that because in one day it says I am going to sign a five year contract worth £1billion per season and then the next day you say that I am leaving and going to PSG - I think that is the answer,” said Mourinho, speaking ahead of United’s Champions League clash with Benfica.

"The answer is that nothing is happening; I am not signing a new five year contract and I am not leaving for PSG.

"I am at Man United and that is it. I have a contract I don't think there is an answer for that.

"I am not in the conditions to answer for that – I have a contract and that is it."

The United boss also, again, confirmed that he will leave the club at some point.

Mourinho added: "I have my contract that ends in May or June 2019, we are in October 2017, so I don't know what to say and I think you don't know what to say too because one day you say I am going to sign a five year contract and the next day you say I am going to leave so I don't think you know what to say.

"The only thing that I told and is true and there was not misinterpretation of my words is I am not going to end my career at Manchester United and I ask how is it possible in modern football that a manager is going to last 15 or 20 years.

"I think Wenger is the last one, it is impossible for us, to last for so long, if in this moment I want to finish my career in four or five years my ambition would be to end my career at Manchester United.

"I think I'm going to be here 15 years minimum in the job and I think it's impossible to stay 17 years in the same club even if you want, even if you try, I think Arsene Wenger will be the last one to do that - that was my answer.

"I don't think I'm going to end my career at Manchester United, after that people try to be clever, malicious. I didn't think about signing a new contract, but I don't think about leaving too."
