The future of Khedira lies outside of the Santiago Bernabeu

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.

Di Matteo has a squad which is filled with young players as Julian Draxler, Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, Max Meyer and Timon Wellereuther are some of the performers in Schalke 04 and all of them are less than 23 years old. The arrival of a World Cup and Champions League winner such as Sami Khedira can give the German club some much needed experience that can help out the team in tough matches and situations.

Besides Schalke 04, there are other clubs that have been linked with Sami Khedira including: Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Ac.Milan.

The future of Sami Khedira is unclear at this point in time but it can be assured that his time with Real Madrid is reaching its last stages.
