Portuguese defender Fabio Coentrao is unhappy about just how little playing time he has received at Real Madrid so far this season.

According to Spanish daily Marca, the 24-year-old would like to hold talks with Los Blancos as soon as possible as he is growing concerned about his prospects for the second half of the season at the Bernabeu.

Depending upon how satisfied Coentrao is with Real Madrid’s plans for him, he may decide that he must leave the club at the end of the season, so disappointed is he with how his Spanish adventure is unfolding.

So far this season the former Benfica man has played for Real Madrid just six times in La Liga, twice in the Champions League and once in the Copa del Rey.


It was assumed that Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho had big plans for his countryman after the Spanish giants splashed out €30M to sign him from Benfica in the summer of 2011.

But he has struggled to cement a spot in Mourinho’s first team this year.

Last season the 24-year-old made 20 appearances in La Liga as Real Madrid won the Spanish title.
