Carlo Ancelotti has raised the tantalising prospect of a reunion with Sami Khedira as he refused to definitively rule out a move for the Juventus midfielder.

Ancelotti worked with Khedira during his time as Real Madrid manager and has been persistently linked with the 33-year-old, who will become a free agent at the end of the season when his contract with Juventus expires.

Juventus, however, would be happy for Khedira to move in January and when asked if the move was a possibility, Ancelotti provided an answer that was similar in tone to when he discussed the prospect of bringing James Rodriguez to Everton last July.
