United confident of landing Khedira

Manchester United are confident of pipping Liverpool and Schalke in the race to sign Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira this summer.

The German international is widely expected to depart the Santiago Bernabeu and although Schalke claim they have opened talks with the player, United boss Louis van Gaal believes he can entice him to Old Trafford.

According to The Sun, the Reds are willing to offer the 28-year-old around €190,000 per week and hope to fend off interest from Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the player’s agent Jorg Neubauer is understood to have held talks with a number of other clubs in recent weeks, although he is believed to prefer a move to the Premier League.
