Germany international Sami Khedira has been on the radar of many top European clubs this summer in light of his contract expiring. And it now looks like Juventus are likely to beat the competition and snap up the player on a free at the end of the season according to The Guardian.
Khedira has had limited chances in the white of Madrid this season after summer signings of Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez have seen his influence wane in the centre of midfield.
The Turkish born Khedira recently revealed his discontent at the way in which the La Liga club handled the breakdown in relationship. Citing that he had been fit to play even when the club said he hadn't been.
Real left Khedira out of the squad in thefinal game of the season thrashing of Getafe, and have used the World Cup winner sparingly since the turn of the year.
The freezing out of Khedira who moved to the Bernabeu in 2010 from Stuttgart is a sign of the times at Real, who are quick to replace and reinvent their midfield each season. Juventus are looking to take the spare parts in this case, and build on their own high powered machine.
Khedira, 28, is expected to complete the move when the season in Italy ends this weekend and will cost the potential treble winning Juventus absolutely nothing as the player is out of contract.
The Old Lady's representatives have been in Germany this week to discuss the player's future and are keen to bolster up their midfield, with the likes of Vidal and Pogba tipped to move elsewhere.
The deal signifies great business from Juventus who may find themselves losing a few star men in the summer and if completed, Khedira would slot into the midfield nicely as the box-to-box midfielder is suited to a more technical league.
