Juventus sign Sami Khedira from Real Madrid

Juventus have announced the signing of Germany midfielder Sami Khedira from Real Madrid on a four-year contract.

Khedira, 28, will join the Italian champions on a free transfer following the expiry of his Madrid contract at the end of this month.

A statement on Juve's official website read: "Juventus Football Club has today completed the signing of Sami Khedira. 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 joined Madrid from Stuttgart in 2010, won the Copa del Rey, La Liga and Champions League trophies during his first three years at Madrid, but was frozen out last season when it became obvious he was not staying.

He had also suffered a string of injuries over the last couple of years, but then-Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti had regularly praised the player's professionalism in training.

Khedira said in a Marca interview last month that he felt he had been sidelined by figures higher up in the Bernabeu hierarchy.

Champions League finalists Juve, who have also agreed to sign Palermo striker Paulo Dybala, could see a number of players leave the club this summer.

France midfielder Paul Pogba has attracted interest from clubs including Barcelona, although Juve insist he is not for sale, while forward Alvaro Morata -- who says he is happy in Turin -- has been linked with a return to Real Madrid.

Veteran midfielder Andrea Pirlo could also move to New York City FC, while doubts remain over Arturo Vidal, who was strongly linked with Manchester United last year.
