Manchester United did not strengthen their attacking midfield in the summer transfer window and for quite some time, they have been linked with Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil.
The German international has been out of form this season and his current deal with the North Londoners will expire next year.
If the latest reports in the media are anything to go by (MEN) then the former Real Madrid star has been advised to run down his contract and join Manchester United on a free transfer.
Jose Mourinho signed Ozil for Real Madrid in 2010 and the playmaker was influential in helping the Los Blancos win the La Liga title in 2012.
As per the provided MEN link, the £154,000-a-week star ($202,000-a-week) is open to the idea of joining the likes of Barca and Real Madrid but in the Premier League, he would only consider joining Manchester United.
This season, so far in 7 league appearances, the 29-year-old star has only scored one goal and provided one assist. In your opinion, will Ozil improve Manchester United’s current attack?
