Cadena Ser reporting that Khedira to Arsenal is OFF for now because he is demanding huge wages - €9.5m per annum. Wenger will not go nowhere near this amount.

Madrid and Arsenal will only start the negociations when Khedira will "come down from his clowd" and accept reduced wages.

Nothing mentioned about Chelsea.

Graham Hunter...

"A fee has been agreed with Arsenal but nothing more, Khedira holds all the aces because of wages etc but is also happy to remain in Madrid if it comes to it. Mourinho asked him to come to Chelsea when he left Madrid and as I understand it it's between two team and that's Arsenal and Chelsea"

Spanish newspaper El Confidential are claiming today that Khedira has performed a dramatic u-turn and is set to release a statement confirming his desire to remain at the Bernabeu.

El Confidential hint that despite the player now wanting to stay at Madrid, it could be too late. Madrid bosses didn’t take kindly to him rejecting their contract extension offer and the Spanish giants have just confirmed the signing of Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich.

Look at this

L'Equipe, not the most reputable source out there, I know, says that Mourinho indeed called Khedira and told him that he is willing to pay those big wages that he demands (~€9m per annum), but only after he ends his contract with Madrid, in 2015, when he would come as a free agent at Chelsea.

Now El Confidencial is saying that Khedira has decided to stay in Madrid. Did Jose convince him to do this?

There are two ways to prevent Arsenal from buying Khedira - Jose either buys him, or he convinces him to stay for another year in Madrid/sign for another team, outside EPL.

Please,do not buy Khedira.He is not woth that amount of money.I have seen him in de Bundesliga,sometimes playing for Real and I have always watched him playing for the german national team and I can say that he has not the quality we need in midfield.yes,he can tackle but that´s it.He doesn´t have the creativity we need.I would rather play Ramires because Ramires does offer more than Khedira.Ramires is fast,can tackle and has a better positional play than Khedira.Please Chelsea,do not waste your money.In the last 2 years,Chelsea has made so good signings and we would destroy our good work at the transfermarket.

Noooo,I do not want to see Khedira at Chelsea,nooooo^^

28 year old Khedira on a free but with £200,000 a week? I suppose this topic will be full of critics until that happens next summer then!

I really don't see how claiming Koscielny is the best CB in the league is outrageous. He was brilliant last season. He could have easily got into the PL team of the season and probably got into other people's teams of the seasons. What you have to remember when Arsenal got battered by us 6-0, Liverpool 5-1, Man City 6-3 etc, it is easy to say he is not a world class CB but the simple reason is that there midfield gets overpowered and outrunned all the time in these big games. His main weakness is that he gives away penalties quite often but apart from that he is one of the fastest CB in the league, maybe the fastest, has a brilliant leap and he pretty much excels at everything else. People who reckon it is a laughable claim to assume he is an excellent CB are watching the Koscielny of his first season.

I know it is just an opinion but even Micah Richards last season claimed that Koscielny had been the best CB in the league last season and that came from a non- Arsenal player. Him and Cahill are pretty similar. Same playing style but I would not take anyone over Cahill because like Koscielny he has came on leaps and bounds here and is arguably the best CB in the league himself judging on his performances. It is laughable that Kompany even got in team of the year. Should have been Cahill and Koscielny imo.

Arteta does the job in games against much inferior teams but against the big teams he does not work hence why I think if they sign Khedira it will improve there physical aspect against the 'big teams'. He is also a much better all rounded better player than Arteta.

This situation is a farce. One minute he's heading to Arsenal, the next he's coming and now he wants to stay in Madrid. Just WTH! :doh:

Haven't RM just announced Kroos?

If he has a year left on his contract - it makes sense to sit tight, leave on a free and go where he wants...

For £200k week and ZERO transfer fee - I would take him, I just don't think he's worth that AND a transfer fee!

As for a farce - it's because it's all rumours and speculation - facts are scarce :)

Graham Hunter on Khedira (1/3): "Arsenal have made the running in terms of a bid & there’s no question Real Madrid have accepted that offer"

Graham Hunter on Khedira (2/3): "The hard line for Arsenal is that, if Wenger wants Khedira, it’s time for him to move his salary structure"

Graham Hunter on Khedira (3/3): "If they dilly-dally, and Mourinho is committed, then he’ll join Chelsea." (talkSPORT) #CFC #AFC #RMCF

I hope we do better than Khedira. He's so uninspiring and unnecessary since we already have matic who is a much better DM. Ramires,Van Ginkel,Chalobah are adequate cover in midfield. It's either buy top quality CM/DLP or stick with the current options as far as i'm concerned.

He doesn't bring any unique qualities or added value to the team.

I'd certainly have him if one of Mikel or Ramires were off.

He's a very good and useful player but no more than that. If you listen to Arse fans gushing and swooning over him you'd think he was this world class super hero who is the answer to all of their problems. He's not a player who will singlehandedly transform a midfield.

To be honest, he'd be a tremendous fit here. More so than he would in Arsenal's side. It would likely mean Oscar won't be a nailed on starter, though. Khedira as the box to box player next to Matic with Cesc further up the pitch.

I laughed yesterday when I was listening to TalkSport and both hosts said that Arsenal signing Khedira would be "a game changer," and that "they SHOULD win the title if they sign him." That's ridiculous. He's no Vidal.

I think he's really underrated by people here but really overrated by Arse fans. I'd be happy if we signed him if it was a reasonable fee.

I can see why Arsenal fans think Khedira will be a game changer...he's got that bit of steel which they clearly lack in midfield.

Ramsey and Khedira would be an interesting combo for the gooners

As for Chelsea...unless Ramires leaves, I don't see the point of spending 20 million on Khedira....

So many misleading lines and quotes. I think is one of those cases of no one really knowing the truth. Journos seeing Madrid sign the likes of Kroos and James and deeming Khedira surplus to requirements. 6 more weeks of this folks.

I think the good thing for us is that we have the 3 that we really want and we have Courtois back. Anything else is an absolute bonus.
