Manchester United are one of the three clubs that Mesut Ozil would be willing to join if he leaves Arsenal, according to reports in the British media.

Website Goal is claiming that the 28-year-old playmaker would be prepared to sign for the Red Devils, Barcelona or Real Madrid if he ends up leaving The Emirates.

The same report claims that both Manchester United and Barcelona have “expressed an interest” in signing Ozil in recent weeks and one of those two clubs could be his next destination.

Ozil’s future at Arsenal has been a relentless source of speculation in recent months after both he and Alexis Sanchez entered into the final 12 months of their contracts at The Emirates.

Neither player appears to be close to signing a new contract at The Emirates, and that could mean that Arsenal will look to cash-in in January, rather than risk losing the internationals for free next summer.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United would line up a firm bid for the Germany international, but Jose Mourinho has worked with Ozil in the past during the pari’s time together at Real Madrid.

Ozil is currently sidelined with a minor knee injury as he works his way back to full fitness.
