Khedira: Last months at Real Madrid the most difficult of my career

Published June 12th, 2015 - 09:49 GMT

Sami Khedira has described his last few months at Real Madrid as the most difficult spell of his career.

The Germany midfielder will move to Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the month when his Madrid contract expires after falling out of favour at the Spanish club last season.

Juve have agreed a four-year-deal with former Stuttgart man Khedira, who was also the subject of interest from Schalke.

But Khedira decided against a return to the Bundesliga and told a media conference ahead of Germany's Euro 2016 qualifier with Gibraltar: "I am very happy this is now fixed and I can now prepare myself for my new club.

"The last few months were perhaps the most difficult of my career because I could not show that I can still do it in Madrid."

Asked about the interest from Schalke, Khedira added: "I had good talks with Schalke but with the changes, especially the dismissal of Roberto Di Matteo, it was no longer as I had imagined.

"I think Juve suits me."

Khedira made just 11 appearances in La Liga during Carlo Ancelotti's final campaign in charge of Madrid.
