Madrid could offer Khedira for cheap

Khedira has one year left on his current five year deal at the Champions league winners and Madrid are keen to get rid of him this summer. This would prevent him moving for free during next summer's transfer window.

This means that Madrid could offer Khedira for cheaper to Arsenal to get the midfielder off their books.

Current Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti prefers the combination of Spanish midfielder Xabi Alsonso and Croatian midfielder Luka Modric.

New signings could push Khedira out 

With new signings James Rodriguez arriving from Monaco and Toni Kroo from Bayern Munich, Khedira will get less playing time than he did this season.

Khedira made 13appearances for Madrid in the Spanish league last season.

However Kroos and Rodriguez look likely to start ahead of him next season so if he were to stay he would not get much playing time.

Arsenal have been linked with the midfielder throughout the transfer window, with bid in the region £24 million reportedly being made.
