Transfer Balls: Sami Khedria Joins Arsenal For £20,000 A Week Less Than Gunners Offered Him
TRANSFER Balls: The Daily Express says Real Madrid’s suplus German, Sami Khedira, “has lowered his wage expectations in order to engineer a move to Arsenal”.
A talented, injury prone talent could be on his way to the Gunners. Well, so says the Express’ Charles Perrin.
The Real Madrid ace has been continually linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea also vying for his signature.
So. Chelsea want Khedira. But Khedira wants to play for Arsenal so badly he’ll accept a slighly less massive pay packet.
But fresh reports surfacing on the continent indicate that Khedira is prepared to accept a pay cut and has dropped his wage demands to £80,000-a-week to force through a move to north London.
Khedira wants £80,000 a week to play for Arsenal.
The 27-year-old appears to have fallen out of favour at the Bernabeu, and recent reports suggested the Gunners had made him a lucrative contract offer of £100,000 a week in order to lure him to the Emirates.
So. Khedria wants £80,000 a week, says the Express. And Arsenal have offered Khedira 100,000 a week, says the Express.
It is thought Khedira’s agent has been in talks over a deal but has yet to finalise a fee.
Not many facts, then. Inded, the Express has some form with Reprtting on Khedira. In October 2014, readers have been told:
