Zanetti denies Chelsea move rumours
"I have a great rapport with Mourinho. We hear from each other frequently, but we`ve never discussed these things," the 40-year-old Argentine told the Inter Channel.
"I believe the Inter fans know how I feel about this shirt. I`ve always stressed that this club is my life and my home. And it`s my desire to stay here. I don`t need to add anything else."
Zanetti`s contract with Inter runs out at the end of the season and media reports in England suggested that former Inter manager Mourinho wanted Zanetti in a player-coach role.
Zanetti has been at Inter for nearly two decades, helping them win five Serie A titles.
He played under Mourinho during the Portuguese`s two-year spell at the club, when they won the Champions League and two league titles.
Inter are fifth in Serie A under coach Walter Mazzarri and host struggling Cagliari on Sunday looking to close the 11-point gap separating them from third-placed Napoli who host Genoa on Monday.
