Mesut Ozil has reportedly agreed to sign a new £280k-per-week contract with Arsenal.
- Alexis and Ozil put the pressure on to land £350k-per-week contracts
- Ozil and Alexis reportedly reject contracts to stay at Arsenal
- Mesut Ozil does another u-turn over Arsenal contract
- German to earn £280k-per-week at Arsenal
While previous reports claimed that Ozil had made a u-turn and decided to sign a new deal at Arsenal after all, an EXCLUSIVE in the S*n has now confirmed that the playmaker will be earning a whopping £280k-per-week. A club record, which the Gunners were rumoured to have offered the 28-year-old this week and he’d promptly turned down.
Apparently, he was ‘holding out’ for £350k-per-week but obviously decided to settle, which is generous. Although I’m not sure he would demand such a pay increase, only to go back on it a day later.
The German currently earns ‘just’ £140k-per-week and is Arsenal’s highest paid player.
Although Alexis Sanchez was reportedly offered the same deal, it appears that he’s turned his down, with an increasing amount of rumours circulating regarding a potential move to Bayern Munich.
