Jose Mourinho has fuelled speculation he will move to Real Madrid this summer by admitting he will coach the Spanish giants "sooner or later".

Former Chelsea boss Mourinho is currently preparing his Inter Milan side for this weekend's Serie A climax where they go into the final round of fixtures two points clear of Roma.

Then comes the Champions League final, in Madrid, against Bayern Munich on May 22.

Recent reports have suggested the Bayern clash will be Mourinho's last on the Inter bench before he switches to Madrid and he was doing little to quell the rumours in an interview with Panorama magazine published tomorrow.

He said: "What they write about me having one foot in Madrid and one in Milan is false.

"(But) Sooner or later I will coach Real Madrid. I coached a big team in England, I am coaching a big team in Italy, and then I will coach a big team in Spain."

Mourinho has already led Inter to the Coppa Italia this season and is closing in on a treble.

But he has frequently expressed his dissatisfaction with life in Italy.

He added: "I have won everything in three countries and I don't need anything.

"But, what makes me laugh is when some presidents compare me to their own coaches who haven't won anything.

"The hypocrisy of Italian football...people come to me and pat me on the back and say 'you're a great coach'.

"But as soon as I turn my back they attack me. I don't like all this."
