The French league leaders are ready to ditch current coach Unai Emery unless he lands the Champions League this season.

And while Mourinho was insistent that he is not thinking of leaving, he may decide his chances of becoming the first man to win the Champions League with three different clubs are better with PSG than United.

Mourinho said of his future: "I have my contract that ends in May/June 2019, we are in October 2017, so I don't know what to say.

"One day you say I am going to sign a five year contract and the next day you say I am going to leave.

"The only thing that I said and is true and there was not misinterpretation of my words is I am not going to end my career at Manchester United."

Speaking ahead of United's Champions League clash against Benfica, he said: "I ask how is it possible in modern football that a manager is going to last 15 or 20 years, I think Wenger is the last one, it is impossible for us, to last for so long.

"If in this moment I want to finish my career in four or five years my ambition would be to end my career at Manchester United."

But Mourinho insists he still has another 15 years in him as a manager.

He said: "I think I'm going to be here 15 years minimum in the job and I think it's impossible to stay 17 years in the same club even if you want, even if you try.

“I think Arsene Wenger will be the last one to do that, that was my answer.

“I don't think I'm going to end my career at Manchester United.

“I didn't think about signing a new contract, but I don't think about leaving too.”

Mourinho will however hope to stay clear of this distraction as his side hope to make it three win in a role in their Champions League campaign this season as they face Portuguese giants Benfica tonight at the Estadio da Luz.
