Sami Khedira to Manchester United

Football News

The Germany international was linked with Manchester United over the summer, and this makes sense on several levels despite Khedira's injury.

United are desperate for a central midfielder to actually play central midfielder. Marouane Fellaini could work at Old Trafford - but not alongside Michael Carrick - he needs to be further forward.

Khedira is talented enough to make contributions going both ways at United, something Moyes's needs in midfield and something Tom Cleverley, Anderson, Ryan Giggs and Fellaini don't provide.

And following the €38m signing of Asier Illarramendi, Sami Khedira could be looking over his shoulder - especially as he is currently sidelined with a torn ACL.

He won't be available until the summer at the earliest, but United are unlikely to spend big-money on a midfielder so soon after splashing out on Fellaini.

Khedira's value is unlikely to increase at the World Cup - if he makes it of course - so United could swoop next summer.
