Sahin not available at a cut price, Madrid Coach Mourinho warns Liverpool
Liverpool have been told by Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho that if they want to sign on-loan midfielder Nuri Sahin on a permanent basis, they should expect to pay his full transfer value, according to ESPN.
Sahin moved to Anfield on a season-long loan deal over the summer after falling out of favour at the Santiago Bernabeu under Mourinho, having struggled to make an impact in his one season in La Liga. Sahin joined Madrid after inspiring Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title in 2010-11 and has scored three goals in his first five Liverpool games.
But Mourinho has insisted that if Sahin is allowed to leave on a full-time basis, the Spanish club will not sell him at a loss. Madrid paid Dortmund just under £8m for the services of the Turkey international, ESPN add, and Mourinho expects to make a profit on a player he hints he does not want to lose for good.
Mourinho said: “Sahin? He is still at Real, he is on loan to Liverpool, and we did not spend a euro for him. He is young and is evolving in a championship that will help him to grow. And, if we want to sell tomorrow, we sell very well.”
