Juventus star Sami Khedira is open to reuniting with former manager Jose Mourinho
The 33-year-old Khedira played under Mourinho at Real Madrid, with the Portuguese signing him from VfB Stuttgart in 2010. Under him, the midfielder won the La Liga title as well as the Copa del Rey at the Spanish capital outfit.
While Mourinho left Real Madrid in 2013, Khedira stayed for two more years before signing for Juventus in 2015. The 2014 FIFA World Cup-winning midfielder tasted plenty of success in Italy as well, although has struggled with injuries and lack of game time over the past year.
Currently, in the final year of his contract with the reigning Italian champions, Khedira has claimed that it is a dream of his to play in the Premier League. (h/t Daily Mail)
“If it is possible, it will for sure be a really big dream [come true] and an honour to be a part of the Premier League.”
The German further went on to add that he would relish the opportunity of joining forces once again with Mourinho, claiming that he admired the manager’s direct approach. (h/t Daily Mail)
“Because of his personality. He is always direct, honest, clear in his mind and a great coach. I really enjoyed working with Jose Mourinho.”

A seasoned campaigner, Khedira would add plenty of experience to the side. However, given his recent injury issues and our options in the middle of the park, it is unlikely that a move will be made.
