Barcelona’s Director of Football, Andoni Zubizarreta, is a passionate fan of gunners club record star Ozil and has been monitoring the player since his days at bitter rivals Real Madrid according to La Portería.
Catalan TV station La Portería has reported over the last few hours that Barcelona are interested in signing Mesut Ozil and will make an offer for the German playmaker’s services this summer. With reports on Thursday suggestting Barcelona will bid €30 million for Ozil.
Barcelona were one of many big clubs tracking Ozil before he joined Real Madrid but instead moved to bring Cesc Fabregas back from Arsenal.
Now that the club record signing have settled well in the Arsenal team and seem very happy here – in only his first season at the club, former Spanish Champions are looking to try their luck to price him away from the Emirates.
However, in regards to this claims. Here are solid facts why Ozil to Barca deal will never happen
– Ozil only just moved to the Emirates last summer and was the 2nd best player behind Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. Do you really see him joining Barcelona?
– Arsenal secured Ozil’s services for a club record fee of £42.5 Million. And Barca are supposedly lining up a €30 Million deal for the German. Question is; why would Arsenal sell, let alone at a massive loss?
– Ozil having only just left Madrid less than a year ago for Arsenal – a club he loved and Admired so much with some sections of the fans still regretting his departure. Would you see Ozil betraying His former club and the fans by moving back to bitter rivals Barca?.
Although there is nothing impossible in the transfer world of football. But considering these facts, it is very unlikely that this claim of Ozil to Barca deal would see day-light
However with the club having struggled so far this season. It is very likely that a restructuring is underway at the club. With the fans of the club calling for Fabregas head.
In my own Opinion, i don’t just see Ozil remaining at Arsenal, but i see former Arsenal captain- Fabregas returning in a sensational move back to the Emirates to pair up with fresh and improved legs at Arsenal in the likes of Ramsey, Wlshere, Podolski and Chamberlain who are all doing a great job currently at the club.
