Mourinho hopes for swift Sahin loan

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho believes it would best for all parties if midfielder Nuri Sahin spends this season on loan at a Premier League club.

• Jose plays down Supercopa
• Carvalho may join QPR on loan
• Jose on Premier League return

Mourinho is thought to be keen to be keen to retain Sahin long-term but, with Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira, Lass Diarra and Esteban Granero all ahead of him in the pecking order, is prepared to allow the Turkey international to spend the season away from the Bernabeu.

The Madrid coach suggested that Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham were all potential options and a year at any of these clubs would help him develop as a player.

"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."

Sahin, 23, was signed by Madrid for €10 million from Borussia Dortmund 12 months ago, but arrived injured and featured little last season. He was played out of position at left-back during Madrid's pre-season US tour recently, and has lost his No. 5 shirt number to Fabio Coentrao for the 2012-13 campaign.

Mourinho hinted that Kaka could still leave the Bernabeu but that nobody had shown an official interest in taking the Brazilian playmaker, whose salary demands are reported to be significant.

"Kaka's situation is completely different," Mourinho said. "We have no official request for Kaka; we do for Nuri."
