Nuri Sahin appears to be on his way out of Real Madrid and could complete a loan move away from the Liga champions by the end of the week, Marca reports.
The Turkey international moved to the Spanish capital from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2011, but failed to live up to the high expectations at the Santiago Bernabeu, partially due to injuries.
Madrid coach Jose Mourinho recently stated that the 23-year-old will be allowed to leave the club this summer, and he has since been linked with clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
Sahin has featured regularly during Madrid's pre-season tour in the USA, but has been restricted to appearances at left-back rather than in his preferred position of holding midfielder as Mourinho prefers the likes of Lassana Diarra, Esteban Granero, Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira.
Therefore, the former BVB star has now accepted that his future lies away from Madrid, and Sahin's agent has been busy to try and orchestrate a move to the Premier League, which could be wrapped up shortly.
