Real Madrid could be prepared to let Sami Khedira join Chelsea this summer for an estimated €40million, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
The Blues have been heavily tipped to make a summer move for the German midfielder, with Jose Mourinho keen to bring him in to add extra mettle to his midfield. So far the idea of Madrid consenting to a sale has been one that hasn’t been considered with much optimism, but Sport claims that they could be tempted if the right price were offered.
That price, reportedly at least, stands at €40million. It’s believed that Real are contemplating a summer revamp of their squad, and a number of first-team stars are bound for the exit door, including Angel di Maria, Fabio Coentrao, Alvaro Morata and club captain Iker Casillas.
Sources state that Madrid have offered Khedira the option to remain at the Bernabeu, with an extension to his current deal which runs out in 2015. However the Germany international may have warmed to the idea of reuniting himself with former boss Mourinho, especially as he might see the Premier League as a fresh challenge in his career.
It remains to be seen whether or not Mourinho will meet Madrid’s estimations of Khedira, although €40million does seem to be a hefty price to pay when it’s considered they only bought in defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic only last month.
