Sami Khedira ‘demands £153,000 per week as Arsenal lodge £24 million bid’

Posted: July 9, 2014 in General

Arsenal have reportedly lodged a £24million bid for Sami Khedira with Real Madrid, but have been stunned by the player’s £153,000-a-week wage demands.

The Gunners, who are on the lookout for a new defensive midfielder this summer, are understood to have launched an offer for Khedira this morning following his starring role forGermany in their World Cup rout over Brazil.

However, Spanish outlet 25 Hour Sport claims the 27-year-old has thrown a spanner in the works of any potential deal by demanding a whopping £8m per year to move to the Emirates.

The report makes no mention of whether Arsenal’s initial bid has been accepted or not, but should Khedira’s salary expectations remain as they are, it’s unlikely a deal will ever get beyond the negotiating table.
