Khedira: I won’t sign for Tottenham or Everton in January
Juventus outcast Sami Khedira says he won’t leave the club in January but has opened the door to a possible summer move to Tottenham or Everton.
The Germany international has been completely frozen out of the first team in Turin but rejected all possible moves away this past summer.
Spurs and Everton, managed by two of Khedira’s former Real Madrid coaches in Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti, have been heavily linked with signing the 33-year-old in January.
However, Khedira says he plans to stay at Juventus until his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.
“If you can’t give your all during the game, you try to do it in training or off the field,” Khedira told German channel ZDF.
“When I leave, I want the Juve fans to remember me as a great player. The current situation is not because of Andrea Pirlo, and I am not angry about it. I understand the way he wants to play football.
“A January exit will certainly not happen. I aim to respect my contract to the summer of 2021.
“If the opportunity arises, the Premier League could be an option. I am a big fan of the Premier League. There is dialogue with Ancelotti and Mourinho, as we never really lost contact after our time together at Real Madrid.”
Khedira signed for Juventus from Real Madrid on a free transfer in 2015 and has won five straight Serie A titles in Italy.
