The Real Madrid boss has been widely tipped to leave his post with the Spanish champions at the end of the season, with PSG touted as a possible destination due to the riches of Al-Khelaifi and his Qatar Sports Investments consortium.

The QSI figurehead sought to play down the link after last night's Champions League win over Porto, but stopped conspicuously short of ruling out an eventual move for the Portuguese.

"Mourinho to PSG? It is not certain," he said, in comments reported by Spanish sports daily AS.

"It is the media who talk about it, not me. Mourinho is at Real Madrid and Ancelotti is with us."

Last night's 2-1 win at the Parc des Princes saw PSG finish top of their Champions League group and Al-Khelaifi said: "It's a very important victory. I am very happy, but not just because we won.

"I am happy about the team spirit. I liked the reaction of the group (to Porto's equaliser). The players gave their utmost to search for this victory.

"We are in the last 16 as group winners, that is very important for us."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
