Mesut Ozil is using the international break to relax after Joachim Low decided to give the midfielder a rest.

Posting on his official Instagram account, Ozil revealed that he was off to Istanbul and the last time he headed there we had to listen to nonsense about him possibly signing for Galatasaray.

Ozil has never hidden his love of the Turkish club and it’s not infeasible that he could end up there one day, but he is on the verge of signing a new deal with Arsenal and there is absolutely no way he would go to Gala when he is at the peak of his powers.

The Champions League also announced that Mesut was named player of the week for matchday four after his solo goal gave Arsenal all the points against Ludogorets.

That’s really just an excuse to watch his goal again.

It almost seems rude not to.
