Sami Khedira set for Serie A switch

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira will leave the Spanish club in the summer to join Serie A Champions Juventus.

The 28 year old midfielder made over 100 appearances for Madrid, scoring six goals since his arrival from Stuttgart in 2010. But he has had an injury hit campaign, making just 17 appearances this season.

During his time at Los Blancos, Khedira has won the La Liga, the Copa del Rey twice and the Champions League.

Many top European clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, were all keen to sign the German international, but he has opted for a move to Italy instead.

Khedira has made 54 appearances for Germany and was involved in the 2014 World Cup winning squad, missing only the final against Argentina through injury.

The arrival of the German speaks volumes that he is the likely replacement for Juve legend, Andrea Pirlo, who is likely to be leaving to move to the MLS.
