According to an interview with German media outlet Bild, Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira hinted that he would like to play in the Premier League having won league titles in Spain, Germany and Italy.
The 2014 World Cup winner told Bild: “Out of the best leagues in Europe, I am missing England after having won in Spain, Germany and Italy.
“The Premier League has always fascinated me. Winning the title there would complete my collection.”
Meanwhile, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is likely to be in the market for a new central midfielder this summer with Michael Carrick retiring, and the futures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera looking to be firmly up in the air.
A partner for Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic in a midfield three looks to be what is needed, and while he is 31 years of age there is no doubting the quality and experience that Khedira has in his locker and would bring to the team.
We asked Red Devils fans to vote on our poll to see whether they would want the club to sign the Germany international this summer, but a majority 65% said they wouldn’t be keen on a deal.
Those supporters would likely want someone younger and with more potential for the future, and it will certainly be interesting to see what Mourinho chooses to do when the transfer window opens next week.
