Sahin, 23, said he wanted to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu despite starting only two league games as Real won the Spanish title last season.

The Turkish midfielder, who joined Real in a €10million switch from Borussia Dortmund last summer, told "Since I arrived here, it has been like living a dream.

"It is one of the best clubs in the world, and for this reason I do not see why I should go. I have no intention of leaving."
