Sporting CP ask Real Madrid about extending Fabio Coentrao loan

Sporting CP want to keep hold of Real Madrid fullback Fabio Coentrao.

The experienced Portugal international moved to Sporting in January on-loan to the end of this season.

A Bola says Coentrao has shone with Sporting, becoming a first-choice for coach Jorge Jesus - and such has been his success that they've asked Real about extending his deal into next season.

Coentrao supports the proposal, with his contract at Real running until 2019.

Sporting, it has been revealed, has paid €1m for Coentrao's current six month deal.
