The 49-year-old, who joined Real in May 2010 on a four-year deal, said early in May he had no ambition to coach in new countries.
But media reports had continued to speculate on his returning to England, with some linking him to a move back to his former side Chelsea.
Other reports tipped him to take the helm at Liverpool after Kenny Dalglish’s departure, though that job is now likely to go to former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas.
“Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho have reached an agreement to extend the latter’s contract with the club until June 30, 2016,” the club said in a statement published online.
The self-appointed “Special One” took Real Madrid to their 32nd league title last month.
That made him only the fourth coach to have won four different league titles after taking the English, Italian and Portuguese crowns.
