Real Madrid are encouraging offers for midfielder Sami Khedira today.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho signed former Stuttgart midfielder Khedira for Real Madrid and is thought to be interested in sealing a reunion with him before Monday's deadline.

Khedira has also been linked with Manchester United, where manager David Moyes has concerns over his midfield options.

Chelsea and United lack a defensive midfielder in the style of Khedira and Madrid sources say Real are in contact with both clubs this morning.
