Arsenal and Chelsea warn off Real
Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger
Mourinho and Wenger were on a shortlist of seven
Chelsea and Arsenal have told Real Madrid there is no chance of their managers leaving in the summer.

Real president Fernando Martin named Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger on a managerial shortlist on Monday.

"Arsene Wenger has repeatedly made his position clear. He is happy here and is not planning to move," an Arsenal spokesperson told the Evening Standard.

A Chelsea representative said: "Chelsea and Mourinho are united in an exciting and long-term project."

Real are looking for someone to succeed Juan Lopez Caro, who was promoted from the B team four months ago to replace Wanderley Luxemburgo.

Marcello Lippi (Italy)

England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson and Liverpool's Rafael Benitez were also named on Real's shortlist.

The other prospective managers were all Italian - AC Milan's Carlo Ancelotti, Juventus' Fabio Capello and Marcello Lippi, coach of Italy's national team.

Martin said: "We are clear about the type of coach we want.

"We want one of the coaches you all know we want - Mourinho, Capello, Benitez, Wenger, Ancelotti, Lippi or Eriksson."

Wenger, Benitez and Capello have all distanced themselves from the job in recent weeks.
