Mourinho: The Premier League will help Sahin
Sahin has had little game time since making his move to the Bernabeu 12 months ago, and Mourinho is eager to farm him out to continue his development.
And the former Chelsea manager believes the English top flight is the best place for the Turkey international, regardless of the club.
"The Premier League is a good place for players to pick up certain characteristics which he does not have," Mourinho told a press conference ahead of his side's Spanish Supercopa first-leg tie with Barcelona on Thursday.
Mourinho denies Kaka bid
While interest in Sahin is high, Mourinho revealed Real were yet to field an offer for Brazilian Kaka. There had been reports Manchester United were interested in tabling a bid for the 30-year-old, but Mourinho denied that was the case.
