Arsenal & Chelsea target looking to stay in Spain

Long-term Arsenal and Chelsea target Sami Khedira has revealed that he would be “very happy” to sign a new deal with Real Madrid.

The German World Cup winner’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, and there have been suggestions that he’s ready to run this down before leaving on a free transfer.

Khedira himself is allowed to discuss a Bosman switch with any interested clubs as soon as the calendar flips over to 2015, and it has long been suggested that both Arsenal and Chelsea are prepared to offer him a new challenge.

Real are rumoured to be willing to offload him for a cut-price fee next month in a bid to avoid losing him for free, with the midfield star having previously spurned negotiations with the Madrid giants.

But the 27-year-old says that, although he hasn’t been a first-team regular of late, he’d be “very happy” if a deal can be worked out with the reigning European champions:

“If we can reach a solution, I’ll be very happy.” He told the Stuttgarter Nachrichten.

“I’m confident that soon I will get more of a chance to play. There are other players in my position but that competition is healthy.”
