Sami Khedira's injury and a possible six months on the sidelines is much worse news for Real Madrid than for Germany. Germany coach Joachim Low will be able to call upon a wealth of midfielders to replace Khedira, but Khedira is unique to Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti, though, has said that there would be no need for the Spanish giants to step into the transfer market for a short-term signing.
Bad news first. Khedira got injured while playing for Germany against Italy. Andre Pirlo of all people had a clash with Khedira and even more astonishing was the fact that it was Khedira who came out of that challenge with a tear in his knee ligament. Khedira will miss the rest of the season for [...

Manchester United's search for a new midfielder looks likely to continue in the January transfer window, with an ideal transfer target potentially unsettled in Spain.
Sami Khedira, who the Premier League champions are thought to have made a late bid for before the summer transfer window closed, has voiced his discontent at Real Madrid, stating that he is being treated as a scapegoat.

Arsenal did sign top class players like Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud last summer, but the arrival of Mesut Ozil is seen as the highest statement of intent possible from a club, which has not won a major trophy in eight years. Ozil has often been described as a magician on the pitch for the way he seems to spot his opponents.
Se dice que el fichaje de última hora de Mesut Ozil por el Arsenal ha supuesto uno de los mejores negocios hechos por un club de la Premier League en los últimos años. Esto se debe a que el mediapunta alemán tiene las mejores estadísticas en asistencia de goles de los últimos cinco años. Se cree que el acuerdo al que se llegó para fichar a Gareth Bale es el gran responsable de la venta de Ozil.
