Jose Mourinho backed to sign Sami Khedira in January by Paul Robinson

Speaking to Football Insider, as relayed by the Express, former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson has tipped manager Jose Mourinho to land the signing of Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira in January.

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.

Khedira, in an interview recently, revealed he enjoyed his time with Mourinho in Real Madrid and would be very much open to working with him once again if an opportunity presented itself. (h/t Express)

And, ex-Spurs goalie Khedira has backed Mourinho to sign Khedira, despite his advancing age, citing the examples of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to back his claims that players even well above 30 can perform at the highest level. (h/t Express)

“Look at the likes of Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic, players can play on a lot longer than they used to. There is no reason why Khedira would not do that, he has a huge amount to offer, but you are not going to sign him on a three-year contract.”

We already have a pretty packed midfield department with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele. And while Khedira would add an experienced head amidst the squad, considering that he has hardly played over the past year would make his signing a risk.
