When asked about job offers from Europe, he said: “Yes, Real Madrid and Sporting.
“What I like is that when a European club have an interest in a professional, they have a conversation to explain what they need. This is really cool.
“There was another club that wanted to talk to me and I said no: PSG [after Unai Emery left in May 2018]. They wanted to talk to me and I said I won’t; I don’t want to and I won’t.
“I don’t want to open up that possibility of something else. I want to be focused on my work. After is another story.”

Tite added: “At the World Cup [just before the 2018 tournament], they [Madrid] said they wanted to talk and I said no, I won’t talk, don’t come close.
“I want to be at peace with myself and my work. I am giving my best. When you do something in parallel, that’s not doing it to the fullest. I can’t do it.
“I received offers from Real Madrid, PSG and Sporting. But I didn’t want that. I want to win the World Cup. After the World Cup, I will decide my future.”
