Return to Germany on the cards…
Real Madrid star Sami Khedira has agreed a Bosman, summer move to Bayern Munich in what could be a significant blow to Arsenal and Chelsea, reports CaughtOffside.
The German had been wanted by the Gunners who are still on the lookout for a robust midfield general and it was also rumoured that Jose Mourinho was keen on a reunion with his former Real Madrid star, but both look set to lose out to the Bundesliga champions.
The 27-year-old is out of contract in the summer and, says the report, will switch from the Bernabeu to the Allianz Area after not receiving an extension to his current deal with the reigning European cup holders.
The German has struggled for game time since a knee injury forced him out of action until the closing months of last season.
But Khedira has also struggled with his competition; Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are both ahead of him and with the additions of Martin Odegaard and Lucas Silva his place in the squad could now be under threat.
It is thought he could be an ideal replacement for Toni Kroos at Bayern who left Bavaria last season for Madrid but was never fully replaced by Pep Guardiola.
