Stuttgart ace Khedira: I only want Real Madrid

Stuttgart ace Sami Khedira is ready to join Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old says he will only quit the Bundesliga to move to the Bernabeu — because of his admiration for new Real boss Jose Mourinho.

Khedira said: "I am considering a move to Real Madrid. The club have confirmed there is interest.

"Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world and Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful coaches in the world. Mourinho has always fascinated me.

"He plays a style of football which I can identify with — tactically perfect, compact in defence and quick on the counter-attack. It is the only way to be successful today."

Khedira claims he will decide his future in the next few days and strongly hinted he will be a Madrid player next season.

He added: "If I wasn't serious about a move I would not have allowed any contact from the outset.

"I would not have given it a thought for any other club in the world apart from Real. I will decide in the coming days."
