Khedira was one of the stars of the World Cup and now the Stuttgart man admits he has had his head turned by interest from Jose Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

"I am mulling over the thought of making a move to Real Madrid, " Khedira told Bild. "The club has confirmed that they are interested. Real Madrid is the biggest clubs in the whole world and Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful managers in the game.

"I was always fascinated by Mourinho's style and Real Madrid has set a sign in signing him. The type of teams that play under Mourinho is the style I am after. Tactically perfect, with speed and the nose for goals and tight at the back. This is the only way to achieve success these days."

Khedira also maintained that he would only move away from Germany to go to Madrid and that he would make a decision over his future before next week.

"All I am able to say is that I would not have allowed any contact if I would not be keen on such a step," he added. "I can also say I would not have allowed any other club than Real Madrid to get in touch with me over a transfer at this point in time.

"Still everything remains undecided. I am going to make a decision in the next couple of days, at least next week. This is what I owe to Stuttgart."
