Reports are out claiming that Manchester United are eyeing Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.
The Germany international is off contract in June.
The Daily Star says Louis van Gaal is eyeing a defensive midfielder in the summer and World Cup winner Khedira – who has already confirmed he will leave Real Madrid in the summer – would fit the bill perfectly.
At the age of 28 Khedira would cost a significant amount less than other Red Devils targets Kevin Strootman and Paul Pogba.
The German’s wages could prove to be a stumbling block to any potential deal. It is understood he wants £200,000-a-week to seal an Old Trafford switch.
