Manchester United's £34m bid for Real Madrid star rejected

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have had a shock bid for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira rejected, according to Spanish radio station Cope.

The Red Devils had been expected to complete a deal for Athletic Bilbao star Ander Herrera, but Spanish reports have suggested that Manchester United boss David Moyes has turned his attention to the Real star.

However, despite the German international being unsettled at the Bernabeu, Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly told the midfielder that he is key to his side's plans and he will not be sold.

Ancelotti doesn't want to lose any more of his midfielders as Kaka has already returned to AC Milan today and Mesut Ozil is closing in on a move to north London outfit Arsenal.

Moyes will be desperate to make his first major signing as boss of the Old Trafford side, with the 11pm transfer deadline fast approaching, however a deal for Khedira now looks unlikely.
