Spanish giants the only club that appeals to Portuguese coach

Jose Mourinho admits his only options this summer are to stick with Inter Milan or move on to Real Madrid. The Portuguese coach has helped to bring the glory days back to Inter during his time in Italy, with the club currently on the brink of an unprecedented Treble. With the Serie A title and Italian Cup already in the bag, Saturday's UEFA Champions League final against Bayern Munich is all that stands between Mourinho and another slice of history. Such success could lead him to head for the exits, with the former Chelsea boss always keen to take on a new challenge. A switch to Real would certainly provide him with a stiff test, with the Spanish giants having seen arch-rivals Barcelona successfully defend their Primera Liga crown this season. Mourinho has revealed that he would be foolish to turn down such an opportunity were it to arise, but he has also refused to rule out the possibility of sticking around at Giuseppe Meazza.

Clear conscience

"My only options are Madrid or Inter," he told Marca. "To get me to leave this club after two years of incredible work, only Real Madrid could achieve that. If I go, I will move with a clear conscience having changed the club." Mourinho is yet to be contacted by Real, who continue to employ Manuel Pellegrini as their manager at present, but admits he would welcome the opportunity to join such a prestigious club in the future. "All I say is that if you are a coach or a great player to not play in a club like Madrid, leaves a hole in your career," he added. "I want to coach Real 100 per cent. If it is next year or later, I can't say."
