Earlier this summer, Mesut Ozil was reportedly offered to Manchester United before he joined Arsenal.
Sources close to the club suggested that we had rejected the opportunity to take Madrid up on the mandate as David Moyes felt €45 million was a lot for a player in a position United already had strength in.
However, Mesut Ozil’s father and agent Mustapha is now pursuing a lawsuit after claiming that fraudsters approached United on his behalf and forged his signature.
“Some flimsy people have done, what I never would have considered possible,” he told the Koln Express.
“Someone tried to contact Manchester United and pretended to be me. This is not a trivial offence. We will get to the bottom of this now.”
This is a reported image of the letter that was sent to United.
United’s attempts to sign Ander Herrera saw ‘mystery’ lawyers get involved and now according to Ozil’s father, fraudsters approached United regarding Ozil.
This transfer window was all bit of a circus regarding United’s dealings and this Ozil revelation is the latest in a long string of strange events that happened with United this summer.
