Manchester United are keeping tabs on Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, according to The Daily Mail.


The report suggests the Old Trafford club are considering a bid for the German international, who has found it difficult to hold down a regular starting place in Madrid.


Sir Alex Ferguson has had to cope with a number of midfield injuries this season and an interest in Khedira could be a move to prevent similar problems in the future.


The 24-year-old came to global prominence in the 2010 World Cup, where he replaced an injured Michael Ballack in a youthful Germany side that finished third.


It was after the tournament that he sealed a move to Real Madrid from VfB Stuttgart – he was a graduate of the Bundesliga side’s youth system.


At Stuttgart he made his name as a box-to-box combative midfielder and prefers to play a deep lying role in midfield.


Khedira also captained the Germany Under-21 side that thrashed England 4-0 in the final of the 2009 European Under-21 Championships
