The Ozil to Manchester United stories just won’t go away.
One week, Ozil has agreed to join Manchester United. The next week, he hasn’t. Another report says he’s interested in joining. Then another report comes out and says he wants to stay. Then yet another report comes out saying United aren’t interested at all.
Nobody can agree on what’s happening, but that hasn’t stopped the Metro from pushing out yet another report. This time, they’re saying Ozil’s entourage are confident Manchester United want him when his contract expires in the summer.
There’s an awful lot of noise surrounding a player who supposedly nobody wanted in the summer.
Unfortunately, as long as Ozil’s future remains undecided, these stories are going to keep coming.
Arsenal haven’t initiated contract talks since March, which is rather odd for a club that apparently wants to keep hold one of its best players.
Meanwhile, Ozil is back in the Arsenal first team playing well again.
He scored and got an assist in the 5-2 win over Everton, though was quieter in the 2-1 win over Swansea.
With the January transfer window approaching, there’s going to be plenty of speculation about whether Arsenal will sell him mid-season or not.
