Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira may be subject to a move back to the Bundesliga with Borrusia Dortmund, but only if highly coveted Ilkay Gundogan moves the other way.
German news daily Bild reports that after the high profile departures of Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski, who will leave on a free at the end of the season, to Bayern Munich, there may be further exits for Dortmund’s prize assets.
Gundogan, who scored from the spot for Dortmund in last season’s 2-1 defeat to Bayern in the Champions League Final, has earned rave reviews after his performances for the Black-and-Yellow, and is said to have ambitions of playing in Spain.
And if Klopp prioritises Khedira as a replacement in the midfield position, a swap deal may be agreed. Khedira would be playing alongside Nuri Sahin, who is back at the Westfalenstadion after a unsuccesful move to the Bernabeu in 2011.
Khedira is out of action after suffering a anterior cruciate ligament tear on international for Germany, and questionably could be out of not just this La Liga season, but possibly the 2014 World Cup in Brazil this summer, where he would likely be Die Nationalmannschaft head coach Joachim Low’s first choice holding midfielder.
