Ozil to Manchester United is certain – Wright



Manchester United are almost certain to sign Arsenal star, Mesut Ozil despite increasing interest from Barcelona for his services. This is according to Gunners legend, Ian Wright who believes the 29 year old will be making a switch to Old Trafford sooner rather than later.

The player was left out of Arsenal squad to face Burnley at the weekend as manager, Arsene Wenger claimed that he was Injured. José Mourinho is keen on signing the player to bolster his ranks, as his vision and creativity is almost second to none.

Wright, a bona-fide Arsenal legend, who scored plenty goals for the club in the mid and late 90s believes that Ozil would jump at the chance to join Jose Mourinho at the club, to follow the footsteps of former Arsenal favourite, Robin Van Persie who made the divide from north London to Manchester.

Ozil’s contract at The Emirates expires next summer, meaning that he is free to negotiate with foreign clubs from January 1 but a number of Arsenal’s rivals in the league are looking to sign Ozil as they know that the club would want to sell so as not to lose him on a free transfer.

Speaking to the BBC recently, Wright said, “Mesut Ozil to Manchester United on a free looks a shoo-in,” “I’m sure Jose would love to do that.

“That would frighten me to death. He is a great talent and having great players around him would lift him up as well.“I’m sure him and his agent would not push it this far if they were going to sign (for Arsenal).’ He said.

Ozil may love a reunion with his former manager, Mourinho who worked with him at Real Madrid between 2010-2013, a period regarded as the best period of Ozil’s career to date.

Ozil joined Arsenal in 2013 for a then club record £42m deal from Real Madrid and has gone on to win three FA Cup titles in four years. He is a fantastic left-footed attacking midfielder known for his creativity, passing and vision. If he eventually joins United, he would be a fantastic addition to their team as they look to regain dominance in English football.
