Juventus have confirmed that they will sign Sami Khedira on a free transfer upon the expiration of his contract with Real Madrid later this month.
The Germany international failed to agree terms on a new deal with Los Blancos last summer and saw little game time under former coach Carlo Ancelotti during the 2014-15 campaign, much to the midfielder’s frustration.
“Juventus Football Club has today completed the signing of Sami Khedira,” read a statement released on the Bianconeri’s official website on Tuesday.
“The 28-year-old, who will officially join from Real Madrid on a free transfer on 1 July 2015, has agreed terms on a four-year contract which expires on 30 June 2019.
“Khedira, who is normally deployed in front of the defence as a ball-winning midfielder, is able to cover a lot of ground while also possessing excellent passing and shooting ability, and great vision of the game.
“Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri is set to add a player of class, quality and international experience to his ranks, ready to enrich one of the strongest midfields in world football.”
Khedira will compete for a starting berth with Claudio Marchisio, Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba.
