Jose Mourinho has reiterated his desire to coach in the Premier League again, but says he will not break his contract at Real Madrid.
The Portuguese spent three productive years at Chelsea between 2004 and 2007, guiding the club to back-to-back league titles and six trophies in all.
He has hinted at a return to England on numerous occasions since departing Stamford Bridge, but his standing as one of the top coaches in world football has seen him snapped up by Inter Milan and now Real.
Mourinho is tied to his current employers until 2016 and insists it is his intention to see out that deal, even if he manages to land the club a 10th UEFA Champions League crown.
"If we don't win the Champions League this year, we will win it next season," he told France Football.
"If I won it would I leave Real? No. I will only leave if I am thrown out.
"When I sign a contract, I sign it with the intention of fulfilling it, with the intention of building and laying the foundations for my successor.
"Would I go back to England one day? Yes, for sure.
"Without trying to predict the future, I admit I would go back to England but only after I am finished at Real. No earlier than 2016.
"I like it where I am, I am fine here. That is the truth."
