Real Madrid’s Nuri Sahin will not be heading back to Borussia Dortmund this summer says general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke.
The 23-year old German-born Turkey international, who has recently been linked with Tottenham and Manchester United, has failed to settle in Madrid and could be on the move during the current transfer window.
But Watzke insists that Sahin will not be returning to German champions Dortmund at this stage after he left the club for the Santiago Bernabeu last summer.
"Sahin coming back to us is not planned, either by him or us," Watzke told Sport Bild.
"However, he' s a boy with a Dortmund past and he came from our youth team, so I would never rule out a return."
