Florentino Perez has reportedly declared his intention to keep hold of Jose Mourinho until the end of his contract in June 2016.
The President was reported at the start of this week to have agreed with the Portuguese that he depart the club as Coach next summer.
However, A Bola are reporting that one of their journalists has since spoken to Perez and he has made clear that wants Mourinho to see out his contract with the club, which runs currently until June 2016.
“Mourinho is my Coach at least through until 2016,” Perez is quoted as saying.
Mourinho has refused to comment directly on the speculation during his Press commitments this week, but did suggest to foreign media during the week that he would be prepared to work ‘wherever’.
