Metro have caused a standstill here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Sami Khedira has NOT agreed a pre-contractual agreement with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
According to the publication, Khedira has actually not yet made his mind up about his future.
Bayern Munich have confirmed that their reported pre-contractual agreement is nonsense, leaving Chelsea and Arsenal still hopeful that they can land the player in January or alternatively, waiting until the summer.
Now as our regulars note over a pint, we think that Khedira is made for the Premier League and is exactly the kind of player Arsene Wenger could do with in North London.
However, the chances of the Frenchman beating both Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho to the German international star are slim to none according to our regulars!
Another point we raise over a pint is the fact that Khedira will not be staying at Real Madrid with reports in the Spanish press making it clear that the former Stuttgart midfielder does not have a future with Los Blancos.
Quite if Chelsea need the player remains to be seen but our Arsenal fans are left hoping and wondering once again – as per usual!
Arsenal fan. Will the Khedira deal eventually come off or is a move for someone like William Carvalho far more likely? Let us know your thoughts below.
