Sami Khedira Produced A Golden Response To Emre Can Rumours
Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira had the best response possible to rumours that Emre Can is joining him in Turin,
The Bianconeri have been heavily linked with the out-of-contract Liverpool midfielder and made their interest is common knowledge.
Grant Wahal of Sports Illustrated reported that the 24-year old German international is poised to sign with Juventus, as well as claiming that a source spoke to his international teammate Khedira, who confirmed it's a done deal.
However, the former Real Madrid man dismissed those Can claims with a brilliant tweet:
A Sports Illustrated source heard me confirm Emre Can is coming to @juventusfc this summer. Only one possible explanation: I am having a secret twin brother :scream::joy: I don't know what Emre will do next season ... #shoutouttomymum #fakenews https://t.co/AnMyf4Ho9I pic.twitter.com/oBJ8vOg1kx

Very good banter from Sami.
His 'twin brother' Can, a £9.75 million signing from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014, has been stalling on a new deal for some time now.
Recently there were some reports, namely from The Mirror, that Can was demanding over £200,000-a-week to stay put at Anfield.
The midfielder denied those reports with a post on his Instagram story and it was Klopp's turn to have his say in a press conference prior to the trip to Crystal Palace.
When asked about the news, the Liverpool boss responded brilliant and joked he'd asked for £250,000:
Klopp asked if Emre Can asked for £200k a week deal.
"It was £250k!"

There are reports that Emre Can wants a new Liverpool contract worth £200,000-a-week.
Jurgen Klopp was asked about that in his press conference today. His response?
"It's £250,000." :joy: pic.twitter.com/4w2UpnY2vT

Should Can stick around? Do Liverpool even need him that much?
