Metro have Arsenal fans holding their heads in their hands here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that Jose Mourinho has personally entered the race for Sami Khedira.
The Real Madrid midfielder looks certain to leave the Bernabeu this summer and since the arrival of Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos today, it became evident that both Chelsea and Arsenal are right to be confident of landing him.
Khedira had been thought to be moving to North London with a fee agreed between the two clubs, but a hold up over weekly wages gave Chelsea hope once again.
Now Jose Mourinho is so keen to reunite with Khedira, he has personally called the German to convince him that Chelsea are the club for him.
One of our punters notes that not only will the call carry some serious weight, Chelsea will also be making it very clear that they are more than happy to meet the £150,000-a-week wages asked for by Khedira.
Arsenal fans. Do you think Mourinho will ruin your transfer deal? Should Wenger have offered the money asked for by Khedira or is holding out the way to go once again? Let us know your thoughts below.
