Mesut Ozil arrived to Arsenal in 2014, after spending four years with Real Madrid. Ozil landed at Emirates Stadium as one of the biggest purchases Arsenal made in last years, and seeing his performances during this time, Mesut has demonstrated that the people who said that were right. Now, the German is having one of the best seasons in his career, scoring great goals, giving a lot of assists and more important, making a big impact in Arsenal.
Also, Mesut is one of the referents of German national team after the departures of both Philip Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Playing with his national team, he has displayed the best of his game, he helped them to win the World Cup 2014 and reach the semi finals in past Eurocup in France. There is no doubt about Ozil’s quality, but there are things that the German midfielder and his current team have to arrange in order to keep the former Werder Bremen player in Arsenal’s staff.
Last week, we heard Arsenal reportedly offered a 5-years new contract to Mesut Ozil, but it seemed like the German player had some doubts about it, despite the huge salary increment this could mean. Also, there are a lot of reporters saying that this is because Manchester United’s boss Jose Mourinho wants Ozil in his team as soon as possible. Mourinho wants to take advantage of the doubts of Ozil and steal the talented player from Arsene Wenger.

Ozil has become one of the biggest figures for Arsenal right now, and even when we have seen important players leaving the Gunners for others English teams, we believe that Ozil heading to Manchester is almost impossible. Now, we’re giving three options for this theory.
He left Mourinho’s team when he arrived in London. Many people remember when Ozil left Real Madrid alongside Angel Di Maria due to the arrival of Gareth Bale in “Los Blancos”. At that time, Mourinho’s was the head coach of Real Madrid and, after they didn’t win any trophy, both the manager and the player left the team with serious differences between them both and the team.
Arsenal actually wants to renovate his contract. Ozil will face his last year of contract in 2017, reason why Manchester wants to acquire his services. However, Arsenal knows how valuable has been Ozil to them, and they want to keep the midfielder in London for at least 5 more years. They even offer him a rise in his salary in order to keep Mesut in their ranks.
