Mesut Ozil has apparently grabbed himself a new house in London for the princely sum of £10m which makes the rumours linking him with Manchester United seem even more ridiculous than they already did.
In an exclusive in the Sun [we read it so you don’t have to], they quoted a local who said, “I heard from another neighbour that he’s definitely moving in.
“But he’s been living here for years, and I’ve seen him around.
“Someone told me they do that normally when footballers sign a contract with the club, they go from renting to buying. So it could be good news for Arsenal.
“I am not a football fan but we are used to seeing players around here – it seems to attract them.
“Ozil has got some very nice cars outside his current house – he’s got a Lamborghini and a very flash Mercedes sports car.
“We know the people in the house have sold and have moved out so he should move in any day now.
“Ozil is a quiet guy though, I hope. It makes sense for him though the training ground is just down the road.”
The house comes with a cinema in the basement, a built-in bar and wine cellar as well as six bedrooms, six reception rooms, three bathrooms (plus en-suite rooms) a massive dining room plus a ton of other things you’d expect as standard in a £10m house.
They quoted another neighbour who lives in a house facing Ozil’s new pad, saying, “He’s definitely moving in, but we haven’t seen him yet.
“I hope it means our tranquillity won’t be ruined but I have heard Ozil is quite a quiet guy, and he is a practising Muslim so shouldn’t be having wild parties.
“We’re crazy Arsenal fans, but to be honest we would prefer to only see the players at the stadium.
