Manchester United have declared war on Premier League rivals Arsenal in an attempt to secure the signature of Germany international and World Cup winner Sami Khedira, as reported by the Daily Star.
Reports in Spain suggest that a huge selection of Europe’s best teams are interested in the midfield maestro, who has been consistently linked with a move away from Real Madrid since the end of last season.
This selection now includes Manchester United, with Khedira’s position as a free agent come the end of the season putting top Premier League clubs on alert as to his availability.
Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal is thought to see Khedira as a possible alternative to Kevin Strootman, who is known to be a favourite player of his.
In fact, Man Utd are hoping to tie up a £10 million deal for the 27 year old in January, beating Arsenal to the punch for a key target.
