Juventus could gazump Schalke in a move for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira following Roberto Di Matteo’s resignation on Tuesday.

Germany international Khedira has been linked with a return to the Bundesliga since announcing his intention to leave Real having been frozen out by Carlo Ancelotti – who was sacked from his role at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday.

However, Di Matteo’s departure means Schalke could miss out as they look to appoint a new head coach before any decisions are made on potential transfers.

“We won’t be making a decision [on Khedira] either way until we have a new head coach,” said sporting director Horst Heldt.

Khedira has plenty of admirers around Europe and Juventus have already thrown their hat into the ring to take the World Cup winner to Turin.

“He is free so that presents us with an opportunity,” said chief executive Giuseppe Marotta. “He has a particularly attractive profile, but we’re still thinking about it. 

“We have to do assessments that take into account several factors.”
