London, Feb. 7 (ANI): After his disagreements with Milan-based Internazionale over lack of transfer funds, Jose Mourinho is set to pay the 5.5million pound buy-out clause in his contract this summer and return to the Premier League.
"The club and I signed a very objective contract until 2012, because we want to work together. But there is a cancellation clause that Inter will pay me if they want my departure and another that I will pay Inter if I want to leave," News of the World quoted Mourinho, as saying.
Inter won Serie A in his first year and they are currently preparing for a Champions League knockout clash with Mourinho's former club Chelsea this month.
But Mourinho's relationship with club president Massimo Moratti has been strained.
"How can my love for Italy have finished if I never had any love for it? I like working at Inter. I like difficult things. So I'm OK. My place is always in danger because I always coach clubs which a lot of people would like to coach," he said.
"But if my place is in danger after having won the league and with me leading it again and having qualified for the Champions League, imagine what it's like for those who cyclically fail to meet their objectives," he added.
Mourinho's startling revelations will alert Liverpool and Manchester City, who have both been strongly linked with him this season.
Liverpool's relationship with Rafa Benitez has been close to breaking point all season and failure to finish in the top four would almost certainly signal his departure.
As far as City is concerned, it has made steady progress since the arrival of Roberto Mancini. But the Italian is under pressure to qualify for the Champions League this season. (ANI)
