According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Mesut Ozil is looking to run down his contract at Arsenal in order to join Manchester United next summer.
While the contractual situation surrounding Alexis Sanchez has dominated the headlines at Arsenal, it also has to be noted that another of the Gunners’ superstar in Mesut Ozil is currently into the final year of his contract at the Emirates Stadium.
It had been believed that Ozil was open to signing a new deal with Arsenal but now in a stunning turn of events, reports from the Daily Mirror have claimed that the German international is now prepared to run down his contract with the North London side.
£140,000-a-week star is allegedly keen on reuniting with his former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and as a result, the 28-year-old has now changed his mind regarding penning a new contract with Arsenal.
Ozil played some of the best football of his career under Mourinho at Madrid and the divisive World Cup winner can certainly prove to be a very good signing for United, if indeed the Portuguese boss is able to get the best out of him.
