Man United close in on £200,000-per-week Arsenal target

Manchester United have been offered the chance to land Sami Khedira on a free transfer this summer, but the midfielder will cost them £200,000-per-week, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The German ace – who helped his nation to World Cup glory last summer – is due to be a free agent in a few months’ time when his Real Madrid contract expires.

Khedira himself has all but confessed that he will be leaving the Bernabeu, which has alerted a host of top clubs.

United are firmly in the running, but will have to stump up a staggering £200,000-per-week to lure the 28-year-old to Old Trafford.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are also keen, as are Bundesliga clubs such as Wolfsburg.

Roma’s Kevin Strootman remains Louis van Gaal’s top target, but the Dutchman’s knee injuries – he’s currently out action with his second serious problem with the joint in the space of a year – are a worry.
