New York City FC Coach Patrick Vieira confirms Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira “doesn’t have any intention of coming to MLS at this time.”
There were reports the German international could follow Andrea Pirlo to New York and Major League soccer.
“There is nothing I can say because he’s not one of the players we are targeting,” Vieira told reporters today.
“He’s playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world and he doesn’t have any intention of coming to MLS at this time.”
Khedira has struggled with injuries for much of his career, but seems to have found some consistency at Juventus.
The 29-year-old arrived in Turin as a free agent from Real Madrid in the summer of 2015.
This season he has three goals and two assists in 24 competitive games for Juve.
