Arsenal transfers: Agent denies fee agreed for Sami Khedira
Arsenal transfers: Sami Khedira's agent quashes reports that the Gunners have agreed a £19.8m deal with Real Madrid
Sami Khedira’s agent has denied reports that Arsenal have agreed a fee with Real Madrid to sign the midfielder this summer.
The Gunners were said to have reached a £19.8m agreement with the Spanish giants for the transfer of the 27-year-old, who is entering the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu.
We are talking to Real Madrid about his contract, but nothing is close to being decided
The Germany international’s agent, Jorg Neubauer, insists that no deal has been agreed but revealed that his client’s future is “not close” to being resolved.
“We are not in talks with Arsenal,” Neubauer told The Telegraph. “I don’t think a fee has been agreed, otherwise I would have been told.
“When a club have an interest I am sure they will call me and we will speak about things. The same goes for Chelsea.
“We are talking to Real Madrid about his contract, but nothing is close to being decided. Sami has just returned from the World Cup and has gone on holiday.”
World Cup winner Khedira, who netted Germany’s fifth goal in their 7-1 World Cup demolition of Brazil, scored once and made one assist for Real Madrid in 13 La Liga appearances last season.
