Spanish football newspaper and mouthpiece for Real Madrid MARCA is claiming that a deal for German international Sami Khedira is done with it only being a question of personal terms left to iron out.

talkSPORT’s Spanish football expert Paul Breen-Turner explained what the report in MARCA actually meant.

MARCA claim a deal is more or less done for Sami Khedira to join Arsenal,” he said. “Personal terms have not been agreed, but the newspaper claims the two clubs are in agreement over a €25m transfer fee.

“He’s not been brilliant and has suffered with injuries in Spain. Khedira has not shone brightly and has not always fitted into the Real Madrid shape.

“He had a decent World Cup and was unlucky, through injury, to miss the final. There are a lot of things for Arsenal fans to be excited about.

“The only stumbling block is his wage demands, which Arsenal wouldn’t be happy about. Chelsea, who have also been linked to him, couldn’t care less. They have added though that the bad relationship between Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid means it’s more likely that he’ll end up at the Emirates than Stamford Bridge.”
