Report: 2014 World Cup Winner Reveals Talks With Ancelotti

Sami Khedira has admitted that he has held talks with Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti, as quoted by Goal.  

“We spoke on the phone and wrote.

“I have had a difficult time and want to play football again, fighting for three points week after week. That’s what I long 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.”

The 33-year-old has not played a single competitive game for Juventus this season, and a January exit seems increasingly likely.

Khedira will also be getting frustrated as he has been used sparingly for the Old Lady in the past two seasons. At 33-years-old, he likely only has another two years of being able to compete at an elite level and will likely be keen on a new challenge.

Khedira’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season, though he will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.

Khedira has a decorated CV, but Everton will need to be wary of his age and lack of recent playing time. There’s no doubt he may still have a lot to contribute, but they will not be getting the same Khedira that dominated the midfield for Germany and Real Madrid.
