Real Madrid’s midfield maestro Sami Khedira has reportedly turned down a move to reunite with his former Real boss Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, in favour of making the switch to north London side Arsenal, as reported by the Daily Express.
The German international has reportedly already agreed personal terms with the Emirates Stadium club.
Having turned down an offer of a new deal from the Spanish giants, it seems inevitable that Khedira will move on.
The player’s contract with the club expires at the end of the current season, meaning Real have to cash in soon to avoid losing him on a free transfer.
With Arsenal having apparently agreed terms over wages with the player, it now seems likely that Khedira will depart in the January window.
Mourinho was apparently interested in bringing his former charge to west London, but it seems as though the player is set on a move to Arsenal.
