In an interview with Germany’s „Kicker“ magazine, Sami Khedira declared that as far as he was concerned, there existed no arguments for him leaving Real Madrid in January: „Right now I can’t see any reason to leave the club this winter. Real Madrid is the place to be, I have the club in my heart. There is no reason at all for thinking that I want to or should leave.“
The German left Stuttgart for Real in the summer of 2010. ‚Los Blancos‘ paid €14 million for the German, signing a contract that runs out on 30th June. „My agent is presently in talks with Real Madrid“, he revealed when asked about his possible contract renewal. Now that he is fully recovered from the muscle tear that he picked up a month and a half ago, Khedira assured that there are still „many challenges“ that await him with the club.
The story of Sami Khedira is like a fairy tale. When the midfield star of Real Madrid hurt his right knee in an International match in mid-November of last year, he not only returned in less than five months back to the team training of the “Blancos”, but also was eventually a Champions League winner with the team – as one of the starting eleven in the final. Last night came the icing on the cake: World Champion! REAL TOTAL is looking back …
About half a year he was injured. Cruciate ligament rupture. Sami Khedira has won the race against time and is now in the squad of the German National Team for the World Cup. For the first time after his Comeback he talks about his time of suffering, his aims and the plan for the World Cup Title.
