The Daily Star have both Arsenal and Chelsea fans celebrating here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claim that Toni Kroos is set to be unveiled by Real Madrid.
Why is this a good thing you may wonder?
Well as our landlord points out before pouring another round of pints, he notes that this is the clearest indication that Sami Khedira will be allowed to leave the Champions League winners – and it will be for the Premier League.
Both Chelsea and Arsenal have been heavily linked with the former Stuttgart midfield star and we think that a move to the top flight of English football is an inevitability – but exactly which part of London remains to be seen.
Should Arsene Wenger be willing to pay £150,000 per week in wages for Khedira, he should be able to succeed in bringing the player to North London.
However, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to pounce should Wenger once again be a little bit tight-fisted in the market.
Khedira will cost around £23 million and we think for a World Cup winner, that is a small price!
Arsenal fans. Do you think Real Madrid’s proposed signing of Kroos really spells the end of Khedira’s Los Blancos career? Let us know your thoughts below.
