Mesut Ozil could join Manchester United because of a shirt number row with Jack Wilshere, claims the Daily Express.
Ozil has continued to be linked with a move to Manchester United, despite both the German and Wenger stating those claims are fake.
Manchester based newspaper Manchester Evening News via the Daily Express has now come up with a bizarre story.
The report claims Ozil is desperate to join Manchester United next summer.
While this wouldn’t surprise many Gooners because we’ve heard this several times, MEN says the German is hellbent on moving to Old Trafford because of Wilshere.
They say Ozil wants to wear the number 10 Jersey which has been in Wilshere’s custody since Robin Van Persie moved to Old Trafford and Arsenal’s failure to take the shirt from the current owner has prompted Ozil to leave.
It is so ridiculous to claim an established player like Ozil will want to change club because of shirt number.
Ozil has only wore the number 10 jersey for three seasons since he started at FC Shalke 04 and that was when he was at Real Madrid. To think he will now be hellbent on wearing that number after spending five years at Arsenal is ridiculous. Inshort throughout his club career, Ozil have donned the number 11 jersey more than any other number.
Ozil may leave Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the season but shirt number won’t be part of the reason for his exit.
