According to a report from the Mirror, Mesut Ozil has revealed his intentions of leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer.
The Sunday Mirror claim the 28-year-old will run down his current contract, which expires next summer, and believe Ozil’s representatives have already been in touch with United to start the potential deal.
Previous reports suggest The French manager is reluctant to let the midfielder leave the Emirate, but Ozil’s wage demands of £250,000-a-week could prove to be a major stumbling block.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Inter Milan are keen on snatching the German international from Arsenal when the transfer window opens, but reports claims the 28-year-old is keen on completing a move to Manchester United.
In his autobiography, ‘Gunning for Greatness’, Ozil credited Mourinho for giving him the confidence to make an impact at Real Madrid.
“Real Madrid isn’t too big a move for you. Real Madrid is the only right move. Trust me. I’ll turn you into a regular player,” said Mourinho.
“And then all the doors will be open to you. You’ll be able to show the world what you’re capable of.
“And, believe me, that’s a huge amount.”
