New Delhi: The future of German international Sami Khedira looks to get sorted out soon with the 28-year-old being interested in signing a new deal with Real Madrid.
Khedira's contract is set to expire in the summer of 2015 and the midfielder had stated that talks are on with his club in order to find an agreement. In the January transfer window clubs outside of Spain are free to offer him a deal.
Khedira has found it difficult this season to break into the starting XI with the likes of Luka Modric, and Toni Kroos being selected ahead of him in the pecking order. Also there is competition for places from youngsters Isco and Asier Illarramendi.
Khedira knows he will have to battle it out for a place and put his bet to be in the mix.
The midfielder was linked with a move away from Madrid since months with hosts of big clubs interested in getting his signature. Chelsea, Arsenal and Bayern Munich were linked with a move for the German star.
If Real and Khedira don't agree to a new deal, the upcoming moments would be interesting. A big move by any of the interested suitors could see Khedira leave Madrid. It is expected though the matter will be resolved soon as Real will not let him go on a free transfer.
