Manchester United ready to pay €37.5m for Sami Khedira


Manchester United ready to pay €37.5m for Sami Khedira

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is ready to spend
big to bring Germany international midfielder Sami Khedira to the club.

Bild claims
the Red Devils will offer €37.5million to bring the player to the
Premier League – beating one of their domestic rivals in the process.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is also a keen admirer
of the 27-year-old, and utilised the defensive-minded player whilst in
charge of Real Madrid. Presumably, he would have looked to do the same
thing in west London.

Financial muscle

However, ’the special one’ now appears to be behind in the race for
the player, as Manchester United look to flex their financial muscle in
an effort to become a force once again. After winning the title in
2012/13, they failed to qualify for Europe last term following the
retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

David Moyes struggled to make an impact in his first transfer window
at Old Trafford, and whilst he signed Juan Mata for big-money in
January, he paid the price for poor results on the pitch. Club legend
Ryan Giggs took the reigns on a temporary basis, and now Van Gaal is at
the helm despite his World Cup commitments with Netherlands.

Despite his involvement in Brazil, the Dutchman appears to be
doing the business in the market, with Ander Herrera close to completing
a move to Manchester United. Ironically, the Spanish playmaker was
originally a target of Moyes during his spell with the club.

€240m war chest

Van Gaal isn’t going to stop there though, with the German publication claiming
he has €240million (around £200million) to spend in the market.
Midfield seems to be the area that the new boss has identified as a
weakness that needs strengthening.

Khedira could certainly do that, having built his reputation at
Stuttgart before moving to La Liga in 2010. Despite not being the most
glamorous player at the Santiago Bernabeu, he’s racked up over 100
appearances in all competitions over the last four seasons – even with a
knee injury towards the end of last season.

He remains a key part of the Germany national team, and started in
the win over Portugal and draw against Ghana in Group G despite the
recent ACL problem.

Chelsea replacement?

It’s easy to see why Chelsea are interested, given his ability to
play as part of a two-man defensive midfield in a 4-2-3-1 formation at
Stamford Bridge. With Frank Lampard and David Luiz both gone, the Blues
have fewer options in the position next term.

Blues fans rarely doubt Mourinho when it comes to key decisions in
the transfer market, although it’s generally been more attacking players
on the club’s transfer radar. A new striker is a priority on the King’s

But, if they decide they need a holding-midfielder, then there are
few better in the business than Khedira. His style is a little
unorthodox compared to others in the position, and he would be capable
of joining the fast-paced Chelsea attack if needed.


That’s the kind of thing Manchester United would be looking for him
to do if they managed to bring him to Old Trafford this summer, and his
arrival would be a significant boost. The former champions were found
wanting last term with the likes of Tom Cleverley exposed against top
