United eyeing Madrid midfield ace

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are keeping tabs on Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, according to The Daily Mail.


The report suggests the Old Trafford club are considering a bid for the German international, who has found it difficult to hold down a regular starting place in Madrid.


Sir Alex Ferguson has had to cope with a number of midfield injuries this season and an interest in Khedira could be a move to prevent similar problems in the future.


The 24-year-old came to global prominence in the 2010 World Cup, where he replaced an injured Michael Ballack in a youthful Germany side that finished third.


It was after the tournament that he sealed a move to Real Madrid from VfB Stuttgart – he was a graduate of the Bundesliga side’s youth system.


At Stuttgart he made his name as a box-to-box combative midfielder and prefers to play a deep lying role in midfield.


Khedira also captained the Germany Under-21 side that thrashed England 4-0 in the final of the 2009 European Under-21 Championships
