Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has urged Sami Khedira to see out the final year of his contract at Real Madrid before switching to Stamford Bridge on a free transfer, according to reports from The Express.

The Germany international – who was a part of his country’s World Cup success this summer – has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent months, with Arsenal having been mooted as his likely destination.

However Arsene Wenger has ruled out a move for the 27-year-old, prompting Mourinho to delve in.

The Portuguese coach is understood to have spoken to the midfielder and told him that there’s a place for him at Chelsea if he runs down his contract with Real and becomes a free agent.

Mourinho coached Khedira while at Real and is known to be a massive fan of his rangy playing style.

Los Blancos are thought to be desperate to offload him for £20m before the current transfer window closes, but with his wage demands standing at £150,000-per-week there is little interest as he will be available without a fee when the season ends.
