Juventus star is set to leave the club as the French Champions are in pole position to land the midfielder
Sami Khedira has had an illustrious career so far at Juventus and Real Madrid. The 33-year-old midfielder has been part of the Juventus setup since he departed from the Santiago Bernabeu in the 2015/16 season. The German international has not been very active since he arrived at Allianz Stadium. Injuries have derailed the form of the player and the midfielder has not received much game time during his ongoing stint with The Old Lady.
Khedira was able to make only a dozen appearances in the Serie A last season and was not a very active member of the first team. Former Juve boss, Maurizio Sarri, was not too reliant on the German and preferred the likes of Adrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey in the central midfield role.
The ongoing transfer window is said to have opened the opportunity for the Bianconeri outcast to shift base to another club. Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly favorites to land the German midfielder. Clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal have also shown interest in the former Stuttgart man. The player is willing to terminate his present contract which expires in the summer of 2021.
Khedira has lost out on first-team football due to frequent knee injuries which have often kept the player out of the squad. The German international is desperate to revive career and believes a fresh start could improve his present scenario.
The French Champions would cherish the arrival of the midfielder as their present setup would be more than happy to use the experience of the 33-year-old. PSG was unable to topple the Bavarians in the Champions League final and had missed out on their maiden title. The search for their first European glory is still the priority for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
Khedira has already missed out on the first two games of this season as the player was not included in the matchday squad. However, the exit has not been confirmed yet as the interested clubs have not yet placed an official bid to secure the services of the German.
