Chelsea call for Khedira

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is making an audacious bid to capture Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira, according to The Daily Star.

It had been reported earlier in the week that Arsenal were close to signing the German World Cup winning midfielder, but now London rivals Chelsea have emerged as a potential destination for the 27-year-old.

Blues boss Mourinho, who brought Khedira to Madrid from Stuttgart in 2010, is reported to have called the player himself in a bid to secure his services.

Khedira has one year remaining on his Real Madrid contract, but having been unable to negotiate an extension the 10-times Champions League winners are now said to be willing to let him leave, with a fee of around £20 million likely to be the asking price.

While Arsenal appear keen to land Khedira, it is thought they are unwilling to meet his large wage demands, a stumbling block that may not be such a problem for Chelsea.

Khedira missed five months of last season after tearing knee ligaments in November, but returned in time to play in Real’s Champions League final win over city rivals Atletico, and then starred in the World Cup, scoring the fifth of Germany’s seven semi final goals against Brazil. He was then sadly injured in the warm up before the final, forcing him to sit out the victory over Argentina.

Khedira's agent, Jorg Neubauer confirmed that no deals had yet been agreed regarding a possible transfer.
