The Portuguese brought Ozil to the Bernabeu after he starred during the 2010 World Cup and went on to make 159 appearances for Los Blancos before joining Arsenal in 2013.
Ozil’s future at the Emirates remains uncertain after talks over a new deal reached an impasse during the summer, prompting growing suspicions of the German’s unwillingness to continue at Arsenal for much longer.
And according to the Independent‘s Miguel Delaney, Mourinho believes he can convince the 28-year-old playmaker to join Man United on a free once his contract at Arsenal expires next June.
Why does the watching world always pick on Ozil following a comical Arsenal defeat?
Is it because he was the worst player on the pitch? No. Is it because he doesn’t run and show enough passion? No.
This is an accusation you could level at most Arsenal players from the last ten years. So why does Ozil, more than anyone, bear the brunt of it?
Because we know, deep down, that he is Arsenal’s best player. Their shining light. And that is what rival supporters always do to best players: abuse them.
Needless to say, adding such a player to United’ ranks would be a monumental step in the right direction, and a huge statement to other Premier League clubs.
