Bild have our punters looking over to the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they ask our landlord for the latest gossip.
The publication have claimed that the race for Chelsea target Sami Khedira has heated up dramatically in the last couple of months.
Real Madrid star Khedira is of course just being eased back into the side after a long spell out injured and we think that given the excellent form of Xabi Alonso and indeed his partner Luka Modric, he might struggle to break back into Los Blancos’ starting eleven.
This has alerted not only the likes of Serie A giants Roma and Fiorentina but also the Blues.
As one of our punters notes, Jose Mourinho knows Khedira well having managed him successfully during his time at Real Madrid and we think a transfer reunion could well be on the cards.
Chelsea are reportedly considering allowing David Luiz to join Barcelona once the summer transfer window re-opens and the future of Ramires is not as secure as it once seemed.
Do you think Mourinho will try and swoop for the coveted German international Khedira? Let us know your thoughts below.
