Khedira renews Juve contract until 2021


Germany midfielder Sami Khedira has extended his contract with Juventus for two more seasons.

Khedira was linked with a possible move to the Premier League in the summer, with his contract set to run out at the end of this season.

He was linked with a move to Liverpool while Paris Saint-Germain were also credited with an interest.

It also opens a new chapter in his career following the disappointment of Germany’s World Cup campaign.

He was part of Joachim Low’s side that were knocked out in the group stages in Russia, following defeats by Mexico and South Korea.

The 31-year-old is in his fourth season at Juventus, and he has played more minutes than any other midfielder at the club in his first three seasons.

Khedira scored Juventus’ first goal this season, three minutes into the 3-2 win over Chievo Verona in Serie A.

He scored his first-ever professional hat-trick against Udinese last season as the Old Lady landed yet another Serie A title.

The midfielder has won three Scudettos and three Coppas Italia during his stint in Turin.
