Jose Mourinho has pledged his long-term future to Chelsea, claiming he does not want to manage anywhere else.
The Portuguese manager started his second stint at Stamford Bridge in the summer, and has vowed to stay for the long haul.
"I'm not here thinking about my next move because I don't want to have a next move," he told the Evening Standard.
"I will have a next move if and when Chelsea decides it's time for that.
"I'm here to stay. I belong to Chelsea, Chelsea belong to me. I gave a lot to Chelsea in the past but they also gave a lot to me. This is a different professional relationship."
Mourinho spent five years away from west London, in spells with Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
But the 50-year-old now feels his European odyssey is at an end, admitting to feeling settled with his family in London, back at the club he first led between 2004 and 2007.
"We kept our house (in London) from last time and, although we tried to hide it, we came lots of times," said Mourinho.
"The success I had in my career gave me the possibility to choose my destiny.
"When I made the decision I didn't know if Chelsea would be available and if the door would be open but when it did, the picture was perfect for me."
Mourinho could be about to make his first move in the January transfer window after midfielder Nemanja Matic told the Portuguese media he has played his last game for Benfica.
The 25-year-old Serbia international left the Blues in 2011 as a makeweight in the deal that brought Brazilian David Luiz to Stamford Bridge.
After two years with Benfica, however, Chelsea look ready to bring Matic back for a second stint at the club.
And the midfielder has hinted that move could be sooner rather than later, telling Portuguese newspaper A Bola he will not be wearing the Benfica shirt again this season.
"I have played my last game here," he said.
"I want to thank all the people at the club and all the supporters. Benfica will forever be in my heart.
"I played here for two and a half years. I gave my best in every training session, every match, and now is the right time to leave.
"I want to improve, I want to go to a better league and I want to go to Chelsea, the club which I also love."
Matic also revealed the Lisbon side have tried everything to persuade him to stay, but his mind is firmly made up to return to England.
"The Benfica president did everything he could to get me to stay here but I have wanted to leave and insisted on leaving," said the Serbian.
