Nuri Sahin has revealed that Real Madrid’s Ricky Kaka turned down an offer from Turkish football this year and is already decided on his future come winter.
The Brazilian was heavily linked with a departure from Real this summer, but failed to leave and has struggled since to be involved in first team affairs under Jose Mourinho.
Sahin, who is on a one-year loan deal away from the club at Liverpool, lifted the lid on the situation.
“I know he had an offer from Turkish football,” Sahin told NTVSpor today.
“And I know what decision he is taking in the winter market, but I cannot reveal that.”
The midfielder then reflected on his current situation at the club.
“I went out on loan after three meetings with Mourinho. I chose Liverpool because I wanted to play at a club with a historical tradition.
“I have played at big clubs in Germany and Spain and now I play for the best team in England.
“Steven Gerrard is a fantastic player and captain. He looks after the younger players, especially Raheem Sterling. I can learn many things from him, it’s an honour to play alongside him.”
