Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira is open to moving to Chelsea this month.

Real are understood to be willing to sell Khedira, with Asier Illarramendi and Casemiro now added to Carlo Ancelotti's midfield options.

The Germany international enjoyed his time under Blues manager Jose Mourinho at Real and has told friends he'd be open to playing for the Portuguese again, says Marca.

Mourinho is keen on a reunion, but wants to sort out a deal for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney before considering making an offer for Khedira.
