Arsenal have so far failed to agree a new deal with superstar playmaker Mesut Ozil. The German international’s current deal with the Gunners will expire next summer and it will not be shocking to see him leave.
According to an exclusive report covered by 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, Ozil can sign a pre-contract agreement with any club in January and as per the provided Independent link, Jose Mourinho is highly confident of convincing Mesut to join the Old Trafford club.
The 28-year-old star worked under the management of Mourinho during his time at Real Madrid. Not to forget, he helped the Los Blancos win the La Liga title in 2012. Therefore, the Portuguese manager is well aware of Ozil’s qualities.
At the moment, the former Werder Bremen star is out injured and could return for Arsenal’s next fixture vs Watford.
This season, Ozil has been out of form. He has so far played five fixtures and has not been able to directly contribute in 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?
