Sami Khedira may not be heading to Arsenal this summer, but the midfielder will certainly leave Real Madrid after the arrival of Toni Kroos.
Khedira’s wages became a problem for Arsenal, with the north London side said to be close to landing the German international. It has, however, opened the door for Chelsea to make a move and for Jose Mourinho to reunite with one of his most consistent performers while manager of Real Madrid.
After winning the World Cup with Germany, there should be a lot of interest in Khedira. His arrival at Chelsea would allow for Mourinho to move to his favoured 4-3-3 formation on a permanent basis – a formation that has been a success for the Portuguese wherever he’s managed in Europe.
