Man United Set to Sign Long Term Midfield Target for Half Price

Sami Khedira Real MadridManchester United will not stop spending this summer till they adequately reinforce every department for new manager Louis van Gaal.

Midfield has been the most concerning department last season and for now the Red Devils have lured one versatile midfield star in the form of Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao.

However, United also need a solid holding midfielder to strengthen the defensive side of the midfield as well.

Former Manchester City man Nigel De Jong has been linked with a move to Old Trafford as Van Gaal wants his compatriot but he is not the only DM linked.

According to reports, Manchester United are set to sign long term midfield target, Real Madrid and Germany midfielder Sami Khedira.

Last summer, under the management of David Moyes Manchester United were interested in luring the Los Blancos star but failed.

Back then, the English giants had a huge bid of €40m rejected for Sami Khedira as Real demanded more for the prized asset.

However, a lot has changed since then. Now as per Spanish source Sport, Manchester United can hire the services of the former Stuttgart man for half the price i.e. €20m.

At the mentioned price tag, Khedira signing will be a major coup. Even though he has been on the treatment table for most part of last season, still his importance was not denied by both club and national manager as after returning, Khedira started the CL final and is an integral part in the Germany World Cup squad.

He is one of the best holding midfielders around and United must act swiftly if they want him at Old Trafford because the latest reports also suggest that Arsenal are after him.

    He had a great game yesterday though he wasn’t 100% fit not a bad addition though he is slow

    Why Khedira? man utd need to bring in new faces/players but not just a player but a miracle,wonder,creativity performer…so why is it Khedira? as for me i don’t believe in him,signing of Khedira will bring in regret for man utd next season and it is wasting of money if man utd sign Khedira

    Khedira is a good player where he is but he wouldn’t be much a good one too at Old Trafford. He has better attacking and defensive supports were he is than what he can get from United. United will be making another Felliana mistake if Khedira comes to United!!!!! But like i said before i men him no disrespect, “he is a good player where he is bcos of the people he has around him, that he might not find handy at Manchester United!”

    United should sign william Carvalho & then look for Vidal or Pogba.

    Khedira is a world class CDM. Would fit into any team and has proved that by slotting straight into the German (Bayern munchen) midfield. Would be a good buy but for nothing more then 25 mil. He seems a bit injury prone. His age also is another factor in price. But.. He is one of those players though, who starts as a squad player and then eventually can not be left out because he plays his way in.. Slow but makes up by good positional sence and great at shielding a ball..

    Actually, that is not my aim as man.u fans since ten years ago now. Although khedira is a nice player but we are not up to looking for his type now but a player that will contribute to develope the club on his arival. For me i think the player we are suppose to concentrate on now is tony kroos.
