Luiz Gustavo to replace Sami Khedira at Real Madrid
With Germany international Sami Khedira destined to leave to Bernabeu this summer, the Spanish giants have identified Brazilian midfielder Luiz Gustavo as a possible replacement, according to Spanish publication El Confidencial.
After flatly refusing to extend a contract with Real Madrid that runs out next summer, Sami Khedira’s future has become the subject of increasing speculation, with both Arsenal and Chelsea linked with a £25 million deal.
The Spanish source has suggested that Los Blancos have already made a tentative enquiry to Wolfsburg about the possibility of signing Brazil international Luiz Gustavo as Khedira’s replacement.
Gustavo will not come cheap, however. A hefty release clause of €33m has so far been enough to put Manchester United off the former Bayern Munich enforcer this summer.
