Man United find out how much Mesut Ozil will cost in the summer – report
Manchester United will have to cough up £8m to sign Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil in the summer, according to reports
Manchester United will have to pay £8m to sign Arsenal contract rebel Mesut Ozil, according to reports.
The Daily Star is reporting that the Red Devils will have to cough up £8m to sign the Germany international when his Arsenal contract expires at the end of the 2017-18 season.
The same article suggests that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is prepared to wait until next summer to sign the former Real Madrid midfielder.
According to the same story, the north London side are prepared to give Ozil £4m to re-sign with the FA Cup holders before the World Cup winner’s wages.
Ozil has been in fine form for the Gunners over the past month or so following three goals and five assists in his last 10 games in all competitions.
The German playmaker scored a brilliant volley to help Arsenal ease to a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend.
Ozil moved to Arsenal in a £42.5m club record deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the 2013 summer transfer window.
The Arsenal star has won the FA Cup three times in four seasons but hasn’t been able to inspire the Gunners to a first Premier League title since 2004.
