Manchester United Eyes Mesut Ozil
Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move to Manchester United to join up with former manager Jose Mourinho.The duo worked together at Real Madrid and went separate ways and as it is, the re-union between the two could happen.
Speculations of Ozil moving to Old Trafford come amid the uncertainty of Alexis Sanchez.The two players have been instrumental in Arsenal’s campaign for domestic titles and the UEFA Champions league before things started falling apart for the Emirates based club.
The World Cup winner’s news to United was sourced from Manchester Evining News and it says United “are ready to make a shock move” for Germany international Ozil, who worked with manager Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.
And the paper suggests Mourinho could even “be interested in bringing Sanchez to Old Trafford.”
Ozil is yet to pen a new deal with the Gunners just like his counterpart Alexis Sanchez. Earlier on,the German star came out to reveal that his future at Arsenal depends on Wenger’s stay at the club.The statement he issued meant that the he could only pen a new deal if Wenger stayed at the Emirates.
With the frequent calls from Arsenal fans for Wenger to step down,it is not known whether Ozil will still commit himself to the club.The French manager has gone through a rough time at the club recently as Arsenal lost pace on the Premier League race and further more they were dumped out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
Manchester United are reportedly following up on Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann and the possibility is that United could move for one or even both .However, it appears increasingly unlikely that Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann will arrive in the summer.It is likely that Mesut Ozil comes as a target too for the summer signings for Manchester United.
