Arsenal have so far failed to agree a new deal with superstar playmaker Mesut Ozil. The Germany international’s current deal with the north London will expire next summer and it will not be shocking to see Ozil leave the Emirates.
According to an exclusive report according to the Independent, Manchester United will make a move in January to sign the World Cup winner on a free transfer next year.
Since his contract is going to expire in less than a year, the former Real Madrid playmaker can sign a pre-contract agreement with any club in January and according to the British tabloid, Jose Mourinho is highly confident of convincing his former player to join the Old Trafford outfit.
Ozil worked under the management of Mourinho during his time at Real Madrid. Not to forget, Ozil was influential in Real Madrid’s superb La Liga title in 2012. Therefore, the Portuguese boss is well aware of Ozil’s qualities.
At the moment, the former Werder Bremen star is out inured and could return for the Gunners’ next fixture vs Watford FC.
This season, Ozil has been out of form. He has so far played five of Arsenal fixtures and has not been able to directly contribute to any goal.
In my opinion, Mourinho must splash a decent amount to hire his services in the January transfer window. Since Arsenal are playing in the Europa League this season, the $185,000-a-week star Star will not be cup tied if he moves to a Champions League club in the winter window.
Mesut is a proven quality superstar and Jose can benefit from his services in the Champions League if he can lure him in the winter window. In your opinion, should Manchester United sign Ozil?
