Borussia Dortmund have admitted that it will take at least €20M to tempt them into parting with Turkish international midfielder Nuri Sahin.
The 22-year-old has been linked with both Barcelona and Real Madrid in recent days and the Ruhr giants themselves revealed that if a bid came in from either of the Spanish giants then they would feel duty-bound to consider it.
"Real Madrid is one of the clubs interested, but there is nothing definite", explained Dortmund’s sporting director Hans-Joachim Watzke.
And Watzke went on to explain that €20M should persuade Dortmund into parting with Sahin.
"We want to collect €20M and at least half this amount will be invested to strengthen the team."
