Stuttgart midfielder Sami Khedira impressed with a number of strong performances for Germany at the 2010 World Cup and the 23-year-old is since continually being linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
However, recent reports suggested that Bayern Munich could hijack Madrid's deal for the holding midfielder. Khedira has now taken the time to discuss a possible transfer and made it clear that he's only considered a move to the Spanish capital.
"Of course, I'm thinking about a transfer to Real Madrid. They've already confirmed that they're interested in signing me," Khedira was quoted as saying by Bild.
"Real Madrid are the biggest club in the world and Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful managers out there. He has always fascinated me and he plays the type of football I can identify myself with. His tactical plans are spot on, with a well organised defence, quick counter-attacks and clinical finishing. That's the only way to be successful nowadays.
"I wouldn't have allowed my agent to contact me about interested clubs if I wanted to stay at Stuttgart. Real Madrid are the only club in the world I've been considering so far. However, nothing has been decided yet. I will make a decision about my future in the coming days."
The midfielder's current contract with Stuttgart runs until the summer of 2011, but the Schwaben are ready to cash in on Khedira for a fee of €15 million.
