Man United in for Mesut Ozil?
According to The Sun, Manchester United are plotting an outrageous swoop for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.
The Sun conveniently ignore the fact that Jose Mourinho has Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney vying for the number 10 spot at Old Trafford.
28-year-old Mesut Ozil has 18 months left on his deal at Arsenal and Gooners are desperate for the club to tie him down to a new long term deal.
Fans react to rumour
Dutch fan favourite Robin van Persie famously broke Arsenal fans hearts when he left North London for Old Trafford in 2012.
Arsenal fans might well lose their minds if Mesut Ozil were to follow in his footsteps but the chances of this deal actually happening seem slim to non-existent.
Manchester United appear to have become the club that players agents use in order to get their clients the bumper contract they so crave.

Why is Mourinho interested in Ozil? How many No. 10’s do United need? We need a CB or 2 CBs.

If Ozil moves to United I’ll actually be done with Football. I’ll even trade in my FIFA 17 at CEX for 20p. I can’t emotionally handle that

Can’t see Ozil joining United but I thought the same about RVP and look how that turned out #mufc

If Arsenal are unable to win the PL or the CL this season I can totally expect Ozil to get unsettled. We get a CL spot and we have a chance
