Real Madrid's coach had a meeting with Spanish journalists sent to Los Angeles in UCLA's training field. In that meeting, the Portuguese coach confirmed that Real Madrid will sign a midfielder out of a list of three men. When asked about Modric, Mourinho said he didn't want to speak about "other club's players." He confirmed he is willing to wait until August 31, if necessary.
He also said Real Madrid will not sign another right back. He believes Arbeloa, Lass and Ramos are enough. Canterano Nacho Fernández could also enjoy some minutes because this will be his third year helping the first team in training sessions.
Regarding Real Madrid's departures, Mourinho said Kaká and Sahin could stay. The Portuguese coach would like to keep the Turkish player, but Sahin wants minutes very badly--he'd like to play in the Premier League. A potential return to the Bundesliga has been ruled out, and the club only wants to loan him without any clauses or extra options for the other team.
Kaka's situation is different. Mourinho understands his situation is not easy and hopes that if the Brazilian player stays, he'll more focused after the transfer deadline ends.
