Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Pepe and Nuri Sahin will be staying.

Portugal defender Pepe has been linked with Manchester United in the last week, while Galatasaray are keen on midfielder Sahin.

But Mourinho says: "Pepe had a great season and people should acknowledge that. Many in the situation he's been in and with everything he's withstood would have left for Italy or England. When we talked about his contract extension he always wanted to stay.

"Sahin will also stay. He never had a full preseason with us, but he will now."
