Juventus confirm deal for Sami Khedira

May 30, 2015 - 5:23 pm

Juventus have confirmed they have a deal in place for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.

Speaking ahead of Juve’s final Serie A game of the season against Hellas Verona, Bianconeri director Beppe Marotta spoke to Sky Sport Italia about the impending move.

“We are very close to Khedira and will announce it officially when pen is put to paper,” confessed Marotta.

The 28-year-old German international midfielder is believed to have completed a medical and will arrive on a free transfer as his contract with Real Madrid comes to an end next month.

“We moved swiftly and tenaciously because he has everything we were looking for. It is a winning group and we took the opportunity to further raise the quality level.”

Marotta was also asked quizzed about the possible departure of Paul Pogba, but insisted the French midfielder will be going nowhere.

“He is a player who had a positive transformation in a very short space of time. Juventus are accustomed to winning and to achieving their targets.

“Pogba is not just a valuable asset for the club, but is also a player who we need to achieve these objectives.”

        That’s the downfall, if it means letting Pogba or Vidal go I’d rather not have him. Our midfield is solid even more now with Khedira

            i don’t feel he will, unless we want to sell him. he’s settled in Turin. Feels like he could end his career at Juve or go back to Chile. He has business interests there. England is such a shock to the system after playing in Italy.

          i think Khedira is great cover – Makes me think who might leave though ?

          Pirlo has one season left and might go early
          Marchisio is Juve for life
          Vidal wants to stay but theres all that Arsenal talk
          Pogba may or may not stay
          Romulo is back to Verona
          Pereyra is a Juve player
          Sturaro is a Juve player
          Asamoah can play in MF but is better as LWB….but he may also be sold
          Khedira is the new signing
          Marrone will be loaned out

    I have a feeling Pirlo will be gone after this season. Really hope we hold onto Vidal and Pogba this summer, I don’t feel too worried though. We just won Serie A for the 4th straight year and are in the finals of CL. There’s not much more a player could want besides higher wages
