Mesut Ozil has spoken out on social media amid speculation surrounding a potential move to Manchester United next summer.
The German, whose contract expires next summer, was expected to pen a new deal at the Emirates over the summer but no agreement has been reached as of yet.
And it has been reported by various outlets in recent weeks that Ozil has expressed a desire to reunite with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford following the 2017/18 campaign.
But the playmaker has taken to Twitter in an attempt to diffuse the current prattle over his future, providing the caption: “Ignore the noise and stay focused”.

Even players who desperately want a move elsewhere ought to have these words going through their heads. Ozil finds himself caught in two minds over his future (otherwise he would have signed a contract ages ago) and most Arsenal fans believe he could be on his way out, but that doesn’t mean everything else stops.
Regardless of circumstance, a professional works hard and gives everything, and this is what Ozil will need to do over the next few months to convince Mourinho that he can bring the German back to his mesmerising best at Old Trafford next season.
