Mesut Ozil’s move to Fenerbahce was announced on Sunday with the Turkish side planning a presentation ceremony later in the week (if you’re in Turkey and qualify for press accreditation, you can get details of how to apply here).

He has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the club, taking an 80% paycut (while still becoming their highest-paid player) and released a five-page statement on social media as he left.
