Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that he has no interest in becoming the next permanent manager of Manchester United, report Sky Sports.

The Special One is the bookmakers’ third favourite, behind Louis van Gaal and Carlo Ancelotti, to replace David Moyes, who was sacked on Tuesday.

However, Mourinho has dismissed any suggestion that he could leave Stamford Bridge by claiming that there is not a job in the world that would move him from Chelsea.

“I don’t know how anyone could think about it,” he told reporters. “I left Real Madrid specifically to come to Chelsea and I signed a four-year contract.

“I told Chelsea they never have to worry about me because I don’t want to leave. So I will stay here as long as the club want me to stay.

“There isn’t any job that would move me from Chelsea.”

Mourinho was also talked about as a contender for the United manager’s job last summer following the retirement of club legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, the Red Devils opted to appoint Moyes based on the recommendation of Ferguson, who moved into an ambassadorial role.

As a manager, Mourinho has never remained at one club for more than three consecutive seasons.

After spending just 76 days as Benfica boss, he had a six-month stint at U.D. Leiria, which was followed by a highly-successful two-and-a-half-year period at Porto.

His first spell at Stamford Bridge, which yielded the Blues’ first two English league triumphs since 1955, lasted almost 40 months.

Inter Milan lifted the 2010 Champions League under Mourinho, who left the San Siro after two seasons to join Real Madrid, where he stayed for three terms before returning to his spiritual home last June.
