Despite Buying House In London, Arsenal Star Is Set To Quit
Following Arsenal’s delay in offering Mesut Ozil a contract extension after talks over a renewal were put on hold back in February due to the uncertainty over manager Arsene Wenger’s future at the club, the German is reportedly set to quit the club.
Ozil, who recently bought a new house in London, is able to sign a pre-contract with a foreign club in January, as his deal at Emirates Stadium expire in June next year.
Despite Arsenal being one of the several options that Ozil could choose from this summer, and it’s quite understood that he is happy living in the capital city where he has made many close friends, however, reports claming that he’s rejected a contract offer in the region of £275,000-a-week are completely false as the Gunners have not put a formal contract proposal on the table yet.
The duo of Barcelona and Manchester United have expressed their interest in signing the Germany international, with both clubs among the three sides Ozil would be willing to represent apart from Arsenal, his former team Real Madrid completing that trio of superclubs.
