A few weeks ago Sami Khedira announced that he will be leaving the Spanish side Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of the season. Khedira is not a consistent starter at the Santiago Bernabeu and the player wants to make a move to a club where he can consistently perform which is not going to happen with Real Madrid anytime soon.
The 28 year old German midfielder told the media: “It’s not a decision against Real Madrid. I want to start a new stage in my career and continue to grow.”
Sami Khedira has a tough time trying to get into the team of Carlo Ancelotti as the Italian manager prefers using Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez in the midfield department of the squad.
In a few months’ time, Khedira’s contract with Real Madrid will be over and the German player already has a number of clubs that are preparing offers in order to sign him.
Schalke 04 is one of those interested clubs and the chairman Clemens Tonnies believes that Sami Khedira wants to make a return to Germany which is where his professional playing career started as he began playing with Stuttgart in 2004 and it was the first top European club that he performed in.
Roberto Di Matteo is the coach of Schalke 04 and even though the German club is doing a fine job in this season as they are competing in the top 6 spots of the Bundesliga, Di Matteo is still interested in signing a few more players that could upgrade the team even further and Khedira has the characteristics that could greatly improve the team.

Sami Khedira’s situation at Real Madrid continues to remain unclear as the defender continues to prolong the contract talks. He is now free to talk with clubs from abroad, but he has confirmed that he is happy to stay at the Spanish outfit.

Sami Khedira made his way out of the hospital yesterday which means there is nothing dangerous about the blow that he had taken on his head playing in the game versus Cornella the other day.
It was a Cup match and was being hosted by Santiago Bernabeu.
Khedira got involved in a collision in the second half of the match. He did not walk off immediately, but, in a couple of minutes’ time, he realized that he was having a bit of a sighting problem and he withdrew himself.
According to the reports, the 27-year old playmaker went to the hospital where he had to stay overnight after being told to do so by the doctors. He was observed by the specialists during the night and then, in the morning, he got discharged.
An official statement released by Real Madrid earlier today confirmed the news.
That statement read, “The results of the tests done on Khedira have been pretty good and he is out of the hospital now.”
However, it has not been specified yet by any of the Madrid officials how many matches Khedira would be missing.
A player generally tends to take a few days to come in normal shape from concussion. It gets better and better with time. Proper resting is necessary and it can be expected that Khedira would be kept out of the scene by the Madrid management in the next couple of games.
As far as that game between Madrid and Cornella is concerned, the Los Blancos, as expected, just smashed the third division side. They secured the win by a margin of five goals.
It was Madrid’s 17th win in a row this season. They have not lost any game after the defeat against Atletico Madrid in September.
