According to reports in England, Mesut Ozil may join Manchester United at the end of next summer.The 28 year old German footballer Mesut Ozil joined the Gunners in September 2013 for a transfer fee of around £42.5m from Real Madrid. The attacking midfielder presently dons the number 11 shirt at Arsenal and became the most expensive German footballer of all time after his transfer from Madrid. His contract ends in the summer of 2018 and still hasn’t signed a contract extension with Arsenal. Mesut Ozil had previously expressed his desire to remain in London during a pre-season interview but now it seems he has his heart set on a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho. As the reports from the Mirror, Mesut Ozil will see off his contract with the Gunners and will join the Red Devils next summer in a free transfer after his contract expires. Sunday Mirror Sport reports that Ozils entourage had contacted Manchester United representatives about a potential transfer at the end of next season and are said to have recieved encouraging feedback. The Portuguese is known to be a long time admirer of the German midfielder. Mourinho was the reason Mesut Ozil moved to the Bernabeu in the first place after the 2010 World Cup.
Mourinho stated after Mesut Ozil’s departure from Madrid:
“Özil is unique. There is no copy of him – not even a bad one. He is the best number 10 in the world.”
“Real Madrid isn’t too big a move for you. Real Madrid is the only right move. Trust me. I’ll turn you into a regular player.” “And then all the doors will be open to you. You’ll be able to show the world what you’re capable of.” “And, believe me, that’s a huge amount.”
Arsene Wenger has always spoken very highly of his attacking midfielder:
“If you’re not excited about watching Ozil, you don’t love football.”
