Mourinho only focused on final

Jose Mourinho insists he is fully focused on Internazionale and the Champions League final against Bayern Munich despite the speculation surrounding his future reaching fever pitch.

The Portuguese coach has been widely linked with the Real Madrid job this summer and Saturday's European showpiece being held at their Santiago Bernabeu home has thrust Mourinho's future firmly into the spotlight.

But despite being regularly asked if he will walk out on Inter to join the Spanish giants this summer, the former Chelsea and FC Porto coach insists his mind is focused on the task in hand.

"Whoever plays the final of the Champions League can't think about anything else," he said.

"When I won with Porto I knew before that I would leave for Chelsea, but right now I can't say. I don't know Real Madrid.

"I'm thinking about a dream, not an obsession. I want my team to play for a dream, not an obsession. Then after the game everyone can move on with their lives, not just me.

"Some will go to the World Cup, some will go on vacation to the seaside, some will go to the mountains, some will stay and some will go. But on Saturday when the game ends I won't be able to say it's my last game with Inter.

"I don't know Real Madrid's ambitions or inner workings. I know only Real Madrid's history – and right now I'm not worried about knowing more."
