Even though the transfer window has been closed down for a few weeks now and it will remain shut for a longer time it does not stop clubs from being rumored or linked with new arrivals and Jose Mourinho has sparkled one of his own rumors.
The former coach of Real Madrid is reported to be interested in wanting to work together once more with Sami Khedira. The German midfielder is not a consistent performer for Carlo Ancelotti and a move away from the Spanish club might just be the best decision he makes for his career.
Chelsea has already seen Michael Essien leaving the club as he made his way to Ac.Milan and they might just need a new player that can be a consistent performer for Jose Mourinho in the Premier League.
Khedira was a target of Mourinho last summer but the defensive midfielder suffered a long-term knee injury which ultimately prevented the transaction from being done. Chelsea has a very attacking minded team with players such as: Lampard, Oscar, Ramires, Hazard and Willian leading the charge for Jose Mourinho’s team but the same cannot be said for their defensive side of the team. Khedira is known and liked by Mourinho as they have already worked together some time ago and the German player even considered himself to be ‘’a disciple of Mourinho’’.
Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti could allow Khedira to leave the Spanish club considering the fact that Xabi Alonso recently agreed an extension and the youngster Asier Illaramendi is showing promising displays of being a future star for the club while Luka Modric can also be used a more defensive midfielder allowing Isco, C.Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria to work their magic on the attacking side of the club.

Germany boss Joachim Loew was dealt with a major blow after it was announced that midfielder Sami Khedira could quite possibly missed the World Cup after suffering a serious knee injury. The Real Madrid midfielder suffered this injury back in November and it was estimated that he would miss the next nine months of action. This made him extremely unlikely to be fit for the World Cup, but the German national team has received a major boost in the form of Khedira making good progress in his rehab.
Germany will go to the World Cup 2014 as one of the favourites to win the tournament itself after having done extremely well in recent major tournaments. However, there is a lot of pressure on Low having failed to win the recent tournaments despite going extremely close. He needs the best possible players at World Cup 2014 in order to tackle the climatic conditions and the opposition. Khedira has emerged as one of the finest midfielders of his generation. He came to the fore in the last World Cup in South Africa.
Mesut Ozil was another good find for the German national team, but Khedira contributes in all areas of the pitch and not just in the offensive side of things.
“If all goes well, Sami’s calendar will be full (this summer). I spoke to Sami on the phone three days ago. He feels good. He’s training gently on the treadmill. He’s not suffered any setbacks,” said Low on the possibility of having Khedira for the World Cup 2014.
In his absence, Real Madrid have been able to maximise the quality of Luka Modric, who has firmly established himself in the first-team. The former Tottenham man struggled for first-team opportunities last season, but he is looking at ease in the centre of midfield for Madrid.

The 26 years old defensive midfielder of Real Madrid and Germany Sami Khedira has been confirmed to be unable to play for either his club or the national team for an estimated time of 6 months.
He picked up the injury during the 1-1 draw against Italy on a friendly match they played at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium on November 15th. This leaves his participation with Germany in the 2014 World Cup in doubts although the doctor of the national team Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wolhlfahrt is confident that Khedira will recover in time.
It was confirmed that Khedira will require a surgery in order to start his recovering process from his right knee.
“This is a bitter blow for Sami and all of us,”
“He is a great player on and off the pitch, he is always thinking positively and this will help and I am optimistic that he will be back in time for the kick-off of the World Cup.We wish him all the best and keep our fingers crossed that the surgery goes well and he can quickly get into rehab.” The coach of Germany Joachin Low said after the conclusion of the match.
The Germans travelled to London earlier this month as they played against England in their last friendly match of this year and despite the absence of Khedira, they still managed to finish the match with a clean sheet and Mertesacker scoring the only goal of the encounter.
His performances have attracted the attention of a number of Premier League clubs as they were about to launch transfer offers for the German midfielder but this injury will probably be seeing him stay in Real Madrid as no club would offload money for a player that is going to be unable to play during half a year.

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira had been touted as a possible transfer away from Spanish club in the summer. Even the player said that a bid from Manchester United was rejected on the final day of the transfer window. Madrid decided to keep him and sell playmaker Mesut Ozil instead. This was done in order to create space for attacking winger Gareth Bale, who came as a world record addition to the team. Khedira has now praised his former teammate Ozil by saying that he will definitely make Arsenal a much better team.
Arsenal have failed to win any major trophy in the last eight years, while the last Premier league title for the club came in 2004. Ozil has been the best assist creator in the last five years amongst all European leagues. One of the main reasons for Cristiano Ronaldo to have such an incredible run of form in front of goal is partly because of Ozil, who is often unselfish and provides an assist even when he has the chance of scoring a goal. Khedira has said that he is a special player and would definitely make Arsenal the best team in England.
Since coming to the Premier league, he has made an instant impact and has already created four goals. Arsenal are top of the table right now.
“Arsenal had a strong team anyway, but Mesut makes them the best team in England. I am sure he can be the player that makes things happen for them and win them the championship. Mesut is a genius on the field, there is no other way to describe him. Of course, there was some disappointment among the players at Madrid because he is the best in his position in the world,” said Madrid’s defensive midfielder Khedira about Ozil.
