Sami Khedira agent denies transfer talk

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United and Chelsea have been dealt a potentially decisive blow in their pursuit of Sami Khedira.

The player’s agent, Jorg Neubauer, has dismissed the idea that his client will leave Real Madrid this summer, despite speculation to the contrary in recent weeks.

Indeed, Neubauer has described the transfer rumours as ‘annoying’, and believe they hurt Khedira.

"Sami will play at Madrid in the upcoming season. I don't know who seems to think it's fun to spread rumours about his future. It's annoying and hurts Sami,” he told Bild.

26-year-old Khedira has been linked with Paris Saint-German, the Blues and the Red Devils as recently as yesterday, with The Daily Express claiming the trio are keen on the former Stuttgart star.

However, the report went on to claim that Carlo Ancelotti would be looking for a fee in the region of £34.5million to allow the player to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

A move to Chelsea would have seen Khedira join-up with manager Jose Mourinho once again, after the pair worked together in the Spanish capital.

The German wouldn’t have walked into the Blues team at Stamford Bridge however, with the likes of Ramires, Michael Essien and John Obi Mikel all capable of playing in one of two holding midfield positions.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have struggled to land a big-name player since the arrival of David Moyes at the helm.

Khedira isn’t the only Madrid star on the Old Trafford radar either, with Luka Modric and Mesut Ozil also mooted as Red Devils targets.

However, a move for the German to Manchester United now appears off, and Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor will have to look elsewhere.
