THere is a great deal of confusion surrounding the Arsenal transfer rumours about a January swoop for the Real Madrid and Germany international star Sami Khedira. And his current club manager Carlo Ancelotti seems to be just as in the dark as anyone, if not more.
According to an ESPN report there have been strong rumours that Arsenal have already held tals with Madrid and their central midfielder and have reached an agreement to bring him to the Emirates in January. But Ancelotti is either being very coy about this deal or he knows nothing about it.
The Madrid manager said, “”I’ve heard nothing. They’re just rumours. He’s our player, at least until June 30.
“Khedira is a player of Real Madrid and I treat him as such.”
There is some hope for Arsenal fans, though, as Real Madrid and many clubs around Europe often do a lot of their transfer business from the top and it is the president not the manager who does the deals.
The report also claims that Khedira has told the German media that he is willing to extend his stay at the Bernabeu, with his current deal due to expire in the summer to leave him available on a free transfer. But once again there is confusion, as Madrid have apparently had no indication from the player about this.
It all seems a bit mysterious but it does leave the door open for a potential transfer bid from Arsene Wenger. Could this stunning Arsenal transfer move still be on?
