EPL: Mourinho breaks silence on rumoured return to Real Madrid

Julen Lopetegui's Real Madrid have lost their last three games

I'm going to play against one of the biggest teams in the world and that's what motivates me and brings me here.

A host of managers have been linked with Real Madrid, including Antonio Conte, Arsene Wenger, and Santiago Solari, while the club's former boss Jose Mourinho has also been touted for a shock return should Lopetegui be hurled out of the exit door.

Real Madrid boss Lopetegui is under severe pressure after another loss at the weekend to Levante at the weekend.

"I don't want to speak about Pogba or other individuals, or Spanish journalists who are only interested in Real Madrid and Ronaldo".

Meanwhile, Mourinho has confirmed Alexis Sanchez is injured and will not face the Italian champions.

"I have many years of my contract left, I am very happy here".

"All I think about is Manchester United", he said.

In his pre-match press conference this afternoon, Mourinho put to bed any rumours suggesting that he could take over from Lopetegui.

He said: "They now have a special player who makes a difference".

Mourinho insists Marco Ianni should be excused for his celebrations after he appeared to taunt the United manager seconds after Ross Barkley had scored an equaliser for Chelsea in added time in their 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Before Ronaldo left, they four Champions Leagues together, three La Liga titles and the Copa del Rey on two occasions.

Five wins in six games across all competitions followed before a downturn in performances and results.

Lukaku said: "The mood has been really positive, we are disappointed with how it ended against Chelsea but like I said at the start of the season, a lot of stuff has changed behind the scenes".

"I have been playing with Belgium for 10 years, I have been there since 16 so players know me".
