According to reports, Mesut Ozil is fairly certain of the colours he will be wearing next season. The German has only under a year left on his contract, which he is willing to run out to secure a move to Manchester United next summer.
United boss Jose Mourinho has always lauded the number 10 and has also claimed him to be the best in the business. The duo worked together at Madrid and formed an impressive pair.
As the news broke out, fans all over Twitter jumped in to have their say. United fans were excited with the signing and thought he would be an ideal signing for the club.
Ozil feeding Romelu, Martial and Rashy, I’m crying in the club right now.— Luke (@LukeUnitedd) October 19, 2017
Ozil finding Martial with passes like this soon — José (@MourinhoMindset) October 19, 2017
Imagine thinking Mesut Ozil wouldn't improve us. With players like Martial, Rashford and Lukaku, we need a player just like Ozil.— The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) October 19, 2017
Arsenal fans, on the other hand, were left fuming with the decision. Some bashed the player, and some blamed the club and the manager for letting him go to a direct rival.
If ozil is sold to United that’s it for me. Final straw I’m not going anymore until Wengers gone.— Woz (@wozthegooner) October 19, 2017
Can’t take it anymore
Ozil thanks for whipping the ball to Giroud's head a lot in 15/16 but it's time to say goodbye— Olly (@AlphaGiroud) October 19, 2017
I'm just going to leave this here..— ⚪️Sully⚪️ (@shaunsully85) October 19, 2017
Mesut Ozil isn't fit to lace a fit Jack Wilshere's boots.
End of story!!
Whether the deal materialises or not is still anybody's guess. But Mesut Ozil should expect a colder embrace from the Emirates in the coming days.
