5 players Real Madrid regret selling
Sami Khedira was easily one of the best midfield enforcers Real Madrid have had in recent seasons. The German was the one who did all the dirty work for the likes of Mesut Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo and others to flourish. His reading of the game was exceptional – mainly from a defensive point of view.
Khedira also had one hell of an engine capable of sprinting up and down the field if needed. His ability to pick a pass post steal was also often admired by his former managers. A complete midfield player, really.
Now at Juventus, Khedira is a mainstay in the first team and has already won three major titles. Given how light Real Madrid are at the centre of the park these days, it's no doubt they'd love to have the German back.Published 23 Sep 2016, 10:46 IST
