Chelsea and Manchester United target Sami Khedira has publicly blasted current employees Real Madrid.

Khedira is not happy by the way he is being treated in Spain and his outburst will have surely increased the prospects of the Premier League duo landing the 26-year-old midfielder.

The German international has also lambasted the club for selling international teammate to Arsenal on the last day of the summer transfer window.

Khedira, who was signed by Jose Mourinho in 2010, told Kicker: "I’m not a Spanish player, I did not cost a lot of money and I am one of Mourinho’s disciples.

"I started the season on the bench or in the stands. Even if I play well, I am the scapegoat and so will not be properly valued.

"A lot of players have lamented him [Ozil] leaving, including me. To lose a player with his qualities weakens the team, but we have other players of quality."

Khedira continued his rant by insisting the La Liga side are playing well as they playing as individuals rather than as a team.

The former Stuttgart man appears to be far from happy at Real Madrid and may be replaced by Xabi Alonso in the heart of midfield when the Spaniard recovers from a metatarsal injury.

Khedira revealed in September that Manchester United made a £34million bid to prise him away from Madrid and Chelsea's Mourinho is said to be keen on linking back up with the midfield enforcer.
