Spanish giants Real Madrid are on the verge of signing Germany international Sami Khedira from Bundesliga side Stuttgart after agreeing personal terms with the holding midfielder, if a report in AS is to be believed.
Madrid and Khedira were already close to agreeing terms about a week ago, but the 23-year-old then asked for an annual wage package of €7 million when Bayern Munich expressed an interest in signing the midfielder.
However, Khedira has now lowered his demands again and has agreed terms with the Merengues.
Real Madrid have yet to reach an agreement with Stuttgart over a transfer fee, but an offer in the region of €10m is believed to be enough to lure the highly rated midfielder away from his current club. Negotiations between the clubs will be opened in the upcoming days.
Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is eager to add a defensive midfielder to his squad this summer to partner Xabi Alonso and the Portuguese gaffer apparently sees Khedira as the perfect option after Daniele de Rossi's transfer fell through earlier this summer.
