Romelu Lukaku has questioned Mesut Ozil’s decision to join Arsenal from Real Madrid last summer.

The 25-year-old, who played the full 90 minutes as Germany thrashed hosts Brazil 7-1 to reach the World Cup final on Tuesday night, joined the north London club in a £42.5 deal from the Spanish club back in September.

Ozil scored five goals and made nine assists for the Gunners in the Premier League and helped Arsene Wenger’s men win the FA Cup in his first season at Emirates Stadium.

But Chelsea striker Lukaku took to Twitter during Germany’s emphatic semi-final win over Brazil to question the playmaker’s transfer.

Lukaku wrote: “No disrespect to Arsenal who is also a big club but I don’t understand why Ozil has left Real Madrid…. I guess will never know..”
