Chelsea to Swoop for Khedira!
Grabbing the tabloid papers off the newsagent`s shelf this morning and immediately turning to the back page, one headline screams out at you.
Our friends over at the Daily Mirror are of the opinion that Jose Mourinho is set to put the kybosh on Arsenal`s move for the German international Sami Khedira.
It would appear that although Arsenal have been heavily linked with the Real Madrid player there has, as of yet, been no contact between the two parties.
Khedira, who is about to enter the last year of his contract at Madrid, is considered a saleable option by the Spanish club who are fearful of losing him on a free transfer next summer.
The price being suggested for a player who has shown he has fully recovered from his knee injury, with some authoritative displays in the 2014 World Cup as Germany stormed to the final; is reported to be £20 million with a weekly salary of something in the region of £150,000 a week.
Having played under Jose Mourinho when he was at Real Madrid could we see Chelsea signing Khedira to give us a midfield that would look like Matic - Khedira and Fabregas?
The floor is all yours!
