Manchester United boss David Moyes should consider bidding for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.
David Moyes, who has insisted that his priority this summer remains to sign a midfielder, has failed to lure the club's top midfield targets Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas to Old Trafford.
Despite interest from the Premier League champions, Barcelona's Thiago preferred move to Bayern Munich, while Fabregas recently claimed to stay at Barcelona this summer.
Red Devils legend Paul Scholes has left a big task for Moyes - to find his replacement at Old Trafford. While, reports suggest that rivals Chelsea were preparing a bid for Khedira.
After his move from Stuttgart in 2010, Khedira has been a key player for Real Madrid under then boss Jose Mourinho.
However, Marca insist that the Germany international could be offloaded by Real Madrid this summer.
The Spanish giants have recently signed Asier Illarramendi from Real Sociedad, who could provide a tough competition to Real midfielders.
But players like Khedira, Luca Modric, Xavi Alonso, Casemiro and newly-signed Isco have already made Ancelotti identify the headache he will face in picking his team each week.
Khedira will prefer first-team football this season eyeing to be a regular starter for Germany in 2014 World Cup at Brazil.
The 26-year-old is at the utmost age and shape to draft himself at the peak of his career.
But Manchester United have now turned their attention to Everton's Marouane Fellaini and are preparing to launch a double bid for the Belgian midfielder and full-back Leighton Baines.
Khedira, who would cost around £20m, has a terrific ability to find his team-mates in the attack and to supply a helping hand to the back four.
In addition, the Chelsea target also provides Champions League experience, which Fellaini does not.
Khedira could prove to be an intriguing first major signing for Moyes, who has to fill in midfield options for his new club.
The midfield pairing between Michael Carrick and Khedira could be an exciting watch and a crucial stride in Manchester United's title-defending season.
However, Khedira's move to Old Trafford is no more than just a reverie as history suggests that Manchester United have made seldom attempts to land German footballers.
Would Khedira he be a perfect fit for Moyes' team? Should Manchester United attempt to sign German footballers more frequently?
