Report emanating from the City of Manchester has revealed that the Red Devils have frontrunners for the signature of Germany and Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.
It is just a matter of when and not if Ozil will Arsenal after almost seeing out his current contract – the Germany playmaker has only six months left on his current contract and he has laid bare his desire to the brass of Arsenal to leave the club.
It was Jose Mourinho that signed Ozil for Real Madrid while he was in charge of Los Blancos and the Portuguese tactician apparently wants a reunion. United are currently without a midfield schemer and they are in search of one that will help them retain possession and create goals.
According to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Ozil is currently wanted by the Old Lady of Turin but United are in pole position to secure his signature.
Ozil who was heavily criticised by fans and pundits over his poor form has become the toast of the fans. He has rediscovered his form but the poor form of the club is enough to discourage him from wanting to stay.
Arsenal stand the risk of losing the star on a free transfer next summer and so, there are many theories that Arsenal could cash in on him. He could even sign a pre-contract agreement with any club if he so wishes.
