Khedira: Bayern Munich will be targeted

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has warned Bayern Munich they will be "the hunted" next season as they attempt to defend their Champions League crown.

Bayern were crowned European champions in May to add to a domestic double of Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal success.

The arrival of former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola and the additions of attacking midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze appear to have strengthened Bayern's hand further.

But Khedira insists it will not be plain sailing for the Bavarians.

"They've got to know that their rivals in Europe are determined to even things up," he said.

"They are now the hunted."

The Bundesliga usurped the Primera Division as arguably the strongest in Europe last season, with Bayern and Borussia Dortmund winning their Champions League semi-finals against Barcelona and Madrid, respectively.

Germany international Khedira is confident that under new coach Carlo Ancelotti, Madrid will lead the Spanish fightback.

"We at Real Madrid, with our new coach, will do all we can to reach the (Champions League) final this time and then win the title," he told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

"A new coach is always combined with a new beginning. I'm sure that working under Carlo Ancelotti is going to improve me."
