After weeks of speculation, Juventus have signed Germany midfielder Sami Khedira from Real Madrid on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old, who was linked with a Premier League switch, has agreed a four-year contract with the Champions League runners-up and will join the Turin club on July 1.

Khedira won six trophies at Madrid, including the Champions League in 2014, and was also a crucial part of the Germany squad which won last year’s World Cup in Brazil. He could well soften the blow of Andrea Pirlo’s potential departure, with the Italian international widely tipped to leave Juventus this summer.
