Sami Khedira set to sign for Juventus – report

Sami Khedira is set to disappoint a number of European clubs including Manchester United by joining Juventus on a free transfer this week, according to the Guardian.

The Real Madrid midfielder has struggled for fitness and form this season and has quickly fell down the pecking order at the Bernabeu.

Khedira announced he would be leaving Madrid earlier this season and the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Man United and Paris Saint-Germain were said to be interested in securing his signature.

However, it appears Juventus have stolen a march on their rivals by agreeing a deal with the 28-year-old, who will be available as a free agent this summer.

Khedira will likely replace Paul Pogba as it looks increasingly likely that the latter will leave the Italian giants at the end of the season.

There are also question marks surrounding the future of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal.

Khedira would have been a shrewd buy given that the lack of a fee but it appears that Louis van Gaal is looking at the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan instead.
