Machester United are planning a January bid to sign Mesut Ozil, according to reports.
Ozil may leave Arsenal as a free agent at the end of the season, unless he signs a new deal. He’s been constantly linked with Manchester United and Barcelona as his contract renewal saga continues to linger.
Although Man Utd have played down reports that they are interested in Ozil, Spanish newspaper Don Balon are having none of it
Don Balon via Calcio Mercato say Mourinho is prepared to table a bid for Ozil in the winter transfer window which opens next month.
The report claims Mourinho is prepared to stump up between €20m and €25m to sign the German from Arsenal.
Arsenal now have to make a decision whether to accept the fee or let the German see out his contract and then leave for free.
Wenger has already given a hint of what will happen in January, when he stated Ozil and Sanchez – who is in a similar situation as well will not be sold in the winter transfer window.
“Yes, I rule it out,” Wenger said, when asked if he rules out the duo’s exit in January.
“For me, they stay until the end of the season — that’s what I decided at the start of the season. They go into the final year of their contract.
“Will they stay longer? That’s impossible to answer today because I don’t know.”
It’s easier said than done, you know. When an offer comes in, the club would have to consider the impact such deal would have on its present and the future financially.
As much as I won’t want to lose any of the duo in the middle of the season, I am scared that there isn’t a guarantee that we’d be able to keep them if a good offer comes in, especially after we almost sold Sanchez last summer deadline day when City came forward with a monstrous offer. We’ll never know until then.
