As the footballing season ends, La Liga midfielder, Sami Khedira will seize to be a Real Madrid player hence, as the Germany international is set to leave the club on a sad note. The player who only appeared 16 times in all competitions all season lamented,
“I did have a small injury, a pain in my right heel, but that wasn’t why I wasn’t playing. It wasn’t a complicated injury. I was able to play. I’ve always felt that I’ve had the coach’s backing but the message indirectly came through to me that I was no longer needed, I was frozen out and wouldn’t have a chance to continue playing. It’s not the end that I wanted. What has happened this season has hurt me to the bottom of my soul.”
Having fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu, his contract wasn’t extended, and the 28 year-old will be on his way to the EPL for free, and Chelsea are favorites to snatch him up. Although he will have to be at his best to break into the Chelsea first team that already boasts of the pair of Matic and Cesc – who were unarguably the best midfield duo in the EPL this season. But a move to Chelsea will likely appear on the cards soon.
Jose Mourinho is obviously going to use his influence at Real Madrid to bring the German to the Stamford Bridge if the reports are anything to go by. It is obvious Mourinho likes the German and signing him shouldn’t be that difficult considering he is a free transfer and Real Madrid would have no say.
