Jose Mourinho has given his nod to Arsenal’s proposed deal to take out of favor Turkish midfielder Nuri Sahin on loan to the Emirates for the next season.
The former Borussia Dortmund star moved to the Santiago Bernabeu in the beginning of last season and since then has managed to play bit part role in Real Madrid’s title winning campaign. The player has repeatedly expressed his desire to stay on and fight for his place, but the coach feels that he should move to get more playing time. Arsenal are seriously interested in the talented playmaker and are ready to bring him on loan for the next season.
‘The point is, he’s a young boy, he wants to play every match,’ Mourinho said.
‘And in Real Madrid with Xabi Alonso, with [Sami] Khedira, with Lassana [Diarra], [Esteban] Granero, [Mesut] Ozil, the situation is not easy.
‘Real Madrid is very difficult. It is not an easy club, because we demand a lot. We have great players, and when you don’t start well, it is difficult to do it.”
‘If he stays, hes’ not a problem for me, he’s one more solution. We leave [the situation] in his hands. Be happy.
‘Decide what you want to decide, to be happy. If you decide to leave we are going to help you to leave. If you decide to stay, we are going to support you and try to succeed this season.’
