José Mourinho wants Arsenal target Nuri Sahin to seal England move
Real Madrid manager José Mourinho believes a loan move to the Premier League would benefit Turkish midfielder Nuri Sahin
José Mourinho believes Nuri Sahin would benefit from joining a Premier League club on a season-long loan, amid interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Sahin, who joined Madrid from Borussia Dortmund last summer, has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal following Alex Song’s departure, while Spurs and Liverpool are also interested in the 23-year-old.
And Mourinho, who is still hoping to bring Luka Modric to the Bernabéu this summer, is keen to see Sahin gain first-team experience at a top-flight English club.
“The Premier League is a good place for players to pick up certain characteristics which he does not have,” Mourinho said.
“It is all the same to me though which club he goes to. I just hope that it happens soon for him, as it is best for him. Liverpool, Arsenal or Spurs, I have no preference.”
But Mourinho revealed the Bernabéu outfit have not received any offers for the former AC Milan playmaker, with the Madrid manager hinting Kaká’s wages are a potential stumbling block to any deal.
“Kaká’s situation is completely different,” Mourinho added. “We have no official request for Kaká; we do for Nuri.”
