The Spaniard has managed just two victories since replacing sacked Steve Clarke at The Hawthorns in January, with the club three points clear of the relegation zone.
Indeed, the 51-year-old will have achieved his "main goal" if he steers Albion to safety, but Mel refused to look beyond the club's remaining three fixtures this season when asked about his long-term future in the West Midlands.
"Right now we must focus our attention on the match against West Ham. There are three very important points to play for, and if we are can get them the rest of the season will be easier for us," he told Goal.com.
"I think we mustn't look further than Saturday because it could distract us.
"We needed to adapt. I'm sure West Brom will be in the Premier League next season, therefore, my main goal will be completed, if it indeed finishes there."
West Brom host West Ham United at 3pm today.
