Mourinho, who has been without a job since being sacked by Premier League outfit Man United in December, has been linked with a return to the Los Blancos, who currently occupy third position on the LaLiga table.
Having been at the helm of Real from 2010-2013, Mourinho is no stranger to the club, but maintained that he hasn't been in contact with the Spanish giants.
The former Inter Milan coach also indicated his admiration for the Madrid fans who sang his name in the wake of their Champions League elimination.
"The chants? I am proud, but Real Madrid have a coach," he told El Chiringuito TV.
"Obviously I am proud when you hear your name in that context, but there's nothing more than that because there has been nothing, not even the minimum contact.
"I haven't spoken to anyone and there are a lot of rumours, but we all know that rumours in football are not good and they are not strong.
"The result was surprising when you see what this club has done recently in this tournament; winning four out of five Champions League is incredible.
"They know that when they have those victories I'm happy for them, and they know too that I'm not happy about what happened at the end of my spell.
"I have a lot of respect for what they've done because I don't think it will be repeated."
Mourinho guided Real to three trophies during his time with the club, clinching the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup titles respectively
