Reports in Spain are claiming Mesut Ozil is eyeing a return to Real Madrid.
The midfielder joined Arsenal from Madrid in 2013 for a club record £42.5m fee but if reports are to be believed, the midfielder wants a move back to the Spanish capital.
Ozil has become a key player at Arsenal since he joined three years ago but his long term future is currently up in the air. The German is already into the penultimate year of the contract he signed with Arsenal in 2013 and is yet to sign a new deal despite entering talks over a contract extension since August.
One can’t really place his finger on any particular reason why the midfielder is struggling to agree a new deal at Arsenal and this has given room for various media houses to make up news concerning the midfielder’s future.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca via The Daily Star, Ozil believes he should never have left Real Madrid and wants a return to the Spanish club. It is claimed he wants to work with Madrid president Fiorentino Perez again and wouldn’t hesitate to join Madrid if they make a move.
But seriously? Does Marca expect us to believe all these?
As much as I can remember, Ozil wasn’t forced out of Madrid but he was the one who demanded a move after falling out of the starting xi, then why the talk about regrets in leaving Madrid?
I personally think all these outrageous rumors are coming up because of the delay in talks to extend the player’s contract and when that is done, it will put an end to all these speculations about his future.
Sign up Mesut! It’s long overdue!
