The Portuguese, whose side need to win at Siena on Sunday to retain the Serie A title, has long said he wants to win a title in Spain having already bagged the Premier League crown with Chelsea and last season's scudetto with Inter.
Media reports have speculated the outspoken but highly successful coach could go to Real Madrid for next season but showman Mourinho is keeping fans on tenterhooks as to exactly when he might go to Spain.
"I have coached a great team in England, I have coached a great team in Italy, I will coach a great team in Spain," Mourinho will be quoted as telling magazine Panorama on Friday, when asked if he was heading to Real.

'King Kazu' offers World Cup services at 43
»Former Japan striker Kazuyoshi Miura is offering to report for World Cup duty at the grand old age of 43 -- with no hint of irony.
Still going strong with J-League second division side Yokohama FC, Miura insists he is serious about wanting to be named among Japan's stand-by players by coach Takeshi Okada.
"I was excited about the squad announcement (on Monday)," Miura told Wednesday's Nikkan Sports newspaper. "If I had been fit I would have felt a greater sense of expectation."
Miura, sidelined with an ankle injury for two months, was famously axed by Okada just before the 1998 World Cup finals in France, sparking a national debate. "Even if there is no chance of playing I don't care," said Miura, who is Japan's second highest goalscorer with 55 goals in 89 internationals and the oldest player in the J-League.
"I'm free and if I can be of service I am here," added the former Genoa forward, dubbed "King Kazu" during his hey-day in the early 1990s when he was Asia's best-known footballer.

Hamilton wants legacy, but not like Schumacher's
»Lewis Hamilton says he wants to be remembered as a Formula One great, but not in the manner of Michael Schumacher.
The 25-year-old Briton entered the sport the year after seven times champion Schumacher retired from Ferrari in 2006, and this weekend is the first time the two have raced each other around the streets of Monaco.
The German's comeback with Mercedes, at the age of 41, has revived memories of his last appearance in Monaco when he was sent to the back of the starting grid for blocking the track in qualifying to secure pole.
That controversy was one of several to have dogged Schumacher's career despite his status as the most successful driver the sport has ever seen, with 91 wins. "I am not really bothered if I am remembered or not. But clearly I am going to be remembered. I am part of the sport, I'm part of its history, I am a world champion," he said.
Forlan shows England what they're missing!
»Uruguay striker Diego Forlan's talents are recognised throughout South America and in almost every European country -- with one exception.
In England, Forlan has always been associated with an unremarkable spell at Manchester United, at one stage being labelled Diego Forlorn after he went eight months without scoring.
Since leaving in 2004 to play for Villarreal and then Atletico Madrid, Forlan has found a new lease of life, averaging a goal nearly every two games but his achievements have gone unnoticed in England, where few believe in life outside the Premiership.
Forlan, however, has now had the last laugh, playing a key role, scoring twice in the two-leg semi-final win over Liverpool and twice more to give his team a 2-1 win over Fulham in Wednesday's final. The 30-year-old, who last year won the Golden Shoe award for Europe's leading scorer, admitted that it had been a frustrating time at United, although there was no sense of revenge.
"When I left United I was playing in a good team, some of the best, with great players, but it was hard to get in the team," said Forlan, who has 23 goals in 61 appearances for Uruguay and is set to lead their attack at the World Cup in South Africa.
