Sami Khedira has revealed that he remains in contact with Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti, intending to announce that both Juventus and the player are hopeful that his contract will be terminated in January.
Under new Juve boss Andrea Pirlo, the former German international found himself out of the picture and was linked with a move away from Turin.
Recently, Khedira said he talked to Ancelotti and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, with whom he had served previously.
Ancelotti referred to the 33-year-old in glowing words, saying recently: “I have a good memory of Sami Khedira, he was at Real Madrid with me and he was a fantastic professional.”
“I would love to collaborate with him.”
And it seems that Khedira is open to once again joining up with his former boss.
Khedira told Bild, “We spoke on the phone and wrote.” “My situation is known to you.”
As he says he is fit and hungry to play regularly every week, Khedira is keen on a transfer in January.
“A new sporting challenge I am open to,” Khedira said. I had a hard time and would like to play football again, competing for three points week after week. It’s what I’m longing for.
“At the moment I still have so much strength and energy, so I am not dealing with summer 2021, but with December and January. A change is realistic, my full focus is on that.”
In Stuttgart, Khedira started his professional career and he does not rule out booking his time in the sport with a side who returned last season to the top tier in Germany.
“In the Bundesliga, Stuttgart is back, and in the Bundesliga, I can’t rule out anything,” he said. “VfB is on a promising and good path.”
He has plenty to offer, the holding midfielder says, and will enjoy a position where he could help develop young players coming through the ranks.
