Arsenal reach agreement for €25m rated Chelsea target

Manchester United

According to reports in Spanish newspaper Marca, Arsenal have reached an agreement with Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira who is also a Chelsea target. It is believed that the Los Blancos have agreed on a €25m offer from the Gunners. Sky Sports have also confirmed the news.

The midfielder however has requested a salary of €7m net per year but the London club might not pay that figure. But several German players with the likes of Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker already featuring for the Emirates outfit, personal terms are more or less likely to be agreed.

The 27 year old has one year left on his contract at the Bernabeu but would fall down the pecking order at the Spanish capital with the imminent arrival of Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich.

Podolski had earlier voiced his desire for Khedira to join him at Arsenal during Germany’s World Cup homecoming and that the 27 year old would also link up with Mertesacker and Ozil under manager Arsene Wenger.

However Spanish website ABC have reported Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho personally called Khedira to reconsider his switch and instead ditch Arsenal for Chelsea.

It is believed that Mourinho has contacted Blues owner Roman Abramovich to hijack Arsenal’s move for the player whom he coached during his managerial tenure at Real Madrid.

  1. i dont really think dat khedira would be a gud buy for chelsea fc nd i would lyk jose mourinho to allow romelu lukaku to stay in stamford bridge dis season nd allow only demba ba to go.i also think we ve enough midfilder’s already

  2. mourinho is a coward who prefers to weakeb teams so that he can shine! he will be trophyless again this year

  3. I prefer him to go for pogba instead of khedira.because of so many qualities and potentials that he has,should we talk about the speed the strength the power or the defensive and attacking strategy,likewise is age is another good factor.and again a creativity player,i prefer him to any other mildfielders in europe presently
