The German playmaker is coming to the end of his five-year contract at the Emirates, after moving to north London from Real Madrid for £42 million back in 2013, and it seems almost certain that he won’t sign a new deal.
That means Ozil will be able to sign for any other club in world football next June for absolutely free and there’s absolutely nothing Arsene Wenger or the Arsenal faithful can do about it.
One of Ozil’s managers in Madrid was Jose Mourinho, and according to the Metro, the Special One is keen for a reunion with Ozil next season – particularly if there’s no transfer fee involved.
The mere idea of Ozil moving to Old Trafford has these Gooners very upset:
If Ozil moves to United, of all teams, I will be so gutted. Genuinely lucky to see such a talented footballer playing for my club.

Reports from Germany state Ozil will leave on a free when his contract expires. Have a horrible feeling he will go to united.
