Prior to signing Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea was constantly linked with Real Madrid’s World Cup winning midfielder Sami Khedira. And if reports are to be believed, we haven’t quite stopped the chase.
Caughtoffside has reported that Chelsea Football Club has reached a verbal agreement to sign the brilliant midfielder on a free transfer in the next summer. Chelsea was hesitant to pay any transfer fee for the player this season as he was on his last year of his current contract. And this means that he will be out of contract after this season, seemingly ready to join the West London outfits. Arsenal was also interested in acquiring the services of this man this window, however couldn’t reach an agreement with Real Madrid, and it is rumoured that the player will prefer a move to Chelsea over Arsenal in the next window as the prospect of working with Jose Mourinho seems to interest him.
This will be a brilliant move for both the club as well as the player as his playing technique and experience can only benefit the club’s high trophy expectations. However, the question can be asked of where he would fit in with Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas already seeming untouchable at the double pivot.
What do you think about this move? Do you want it to happen? Can you imagine a formation where he can fit in with Nemanja and Cesc? Do post your views and opinions in the comments section below.
