Published Add your comment

German World Cup Winner Sami Khedira insist that he never thought about leaving the Spanish capital in near future. Khedira was heavily linked after no contract renewal with the Spanish giants, according to the Daily Mail.

He will be out of contract come summer of 2015, and that’s why he was heavily linked with a departure from the Los blancos, as early as January 2015. However, Germany international have rubbished the talks of leaving the reigning European champions and feels that the club and the coach needs him.

"Right now, I cannot see any reason why I would leave the club this winter," he told German magazine Kicker.

"Real Madrid is a great club to be at. This club has a place in my heart and there is absolutely no reason for me to say that I want to or have to leave. ‘I get the feeling I am still wanted (by Coach Carlo Ancelotti)'"

After joining Madrid from German club VFB Stuttgart in 2010, Khedira have appeared 150 times for the whites, scoring 9 goals in total. He was one of the starters at the time of Mourinho.

Injury Concerns

However, a number of injuries and a change of formation after the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti played a part over the last year, where he lost his place in the first XI, which led to rumors of his exit from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Earlier this season, Khedira was sidelined because of muscular injury that ruled him out for six weeks. He was then left out of the Madrid squad for the match against Rayo Vallecano last weekend, which raised further doubts over his future at the club.
