There has been a whole lot of talk in the meida about the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil recently, or to be more precise, ever since he joined the Gunners from Real Madrid at the end of last summer’s transfer window. But the media have steadily produced more about the 25-year old over the last year.
The recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggested that his time as an Arsenal player could be almost up, with some reports claiming that Arsene Wenger had lost patience with the player he paid a club record £42.5 million for and who has yet to really deliver what was expected on the Premier League stage.
Other meida rumours suggested that it was the player himself that wanted to leave as he was finding life too hard at Arsenal, yet both sides seemed to think that his destination, possibly in January, was going to be back in his homeland with the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Then as The Mirror reported, Ozil rubbished the claims on social media and suggested that he was going to be a Gunner for a long time. And why not, as he has always had the full support of his manager while the German and English media, and plenty of high profile names in German football, were on his back.
And now another report in The Mirror has given another reason for the Arsenal man to be not overly keen to return to play in Germany, especially at Bayern, as he is being accused of having an affair with the girlfriend of German defender Christian Lell, whos spent years at the Munich club.
Lell’s accusations have been published by German paper Bild in what seems like just the latest in a stream of negative articles about Ozil. Would you want to go and play in Germany in those circumstances?
