Manchester City are looking to beat off competition from other Premier League clubs to secure the signing of Sami Khedira, according to the Sunday People.

The Real Madrid star's contract runs out at the end of next season and as yet there is no offer of a renewal on the table which has sparked the interest of many top Premier League clubs including Chelsea, whose manager Jose Mourinho remains an admirer of Khedira from his stint as manager of Madrid.

However, City boss Manuel Pellegrini is keen to secure a deal for the powerful 26-year-old midfielder.

Khedira made his name in the Bundesliga with VFB Stuttgart for whom he won the title in the 2006-07 which earned him a call-up to the German national squad.

His performances in the 2010 World Cup earn't widespread praise and Madrid didn't waste time in signing him.

In three years at the Bernabeu Khedira has established himself as a one of the best midfielders in world football and 'Los Blancos' have no interest in losing the man that helped them to La Liga success in 2012, manager Carlo Ancelotti believes he is a vital memeber of the expensive team.

However the Citizens are more than capable of matching any contract offer for the central midfielder as they look to win back the Premier League title that they first won in 2012.

Pellegrini invested heavily in the summer after taking over from Roberto Mancini, bringing in high profile players from the Spanish League; Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo. So far the Etihad Stadium outfit are fourth after ten games.
