Tony Damascelli, lead writer at Il Giornale and guest at the recent Globe Sports conference in Dubai claims that José Mourinho told him at the event that he would not continue at Real Madrid next season.
In declarations made to Italian web, Calcissimo, Damascelli said, "I spoke to Mourinho in private during the final days of the year in Dubai and he told me that he would not be continuing at Real Madrid and the reasons were political. He said he could not continue. When I asked him what political reasons he was referring to, he replied that he meant the atmosphere, a section of the fans, a part of the club and a part of the dressing room. Then I asked him if he liked Paris and he said, literally, 'maybe'".
