Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderdon says he is unsure over transfer rumours linking Manchester United with a move for Sami Khedira.
The German international is out of contract at the Bernabeu at the end of the season and is likely to leave, with a host of top clubs chasing him.
Arsenal have been linked with the 28-year-old for some time now, while the latest batch of rumours suggest that Manchester United could be looking to pick him up for nothing in the summer. However speaking to TalkSPORT, Calderon says that a return to Germany is the most likely move for Khedira.

"The last thing I heard was that he was heading to Schalke but I don't know," he said. "What is clear is that he is going to leave Real Madrid at the end of his contract in June.
"He's a good player and he won the World Cup with Germany and the Champions League with Real Madrid and he deserves to play for a good club."

As relayed by ESPN Blind has confirmed that captain Rooney might well have had a big part to play in motivating his teammates immediately before they did battle at Old Trafford. According to the Dutchman the England skipper saved his words of wisdom until just before the teams went out.
