Ozil not leaving the Emirates. by Sam P
There was some crazy rumours about Arsenal entering into contract talks with Mesut Ozil because the Gunners thought that Barcelona were interested in taking the German back to La Liga. There were even some fans on here tried to blame these unfounded rumours on Arsene Wenger as part of their agenda to try and get Le Prof sacked.
Well if anyone was sad enough to actually believe that Ozil would be aiming to leave our beloved club while he is having his best season ever and the Gunners are only two points behind in the race for the Premier League title, then they need their heads examined!
So if these peple believe those ridiculous rumours then here are a few more. According to the Independent, Arsenal have leaked to the press that they are fully intending to negotiate a new contract with Ozil, and they are certain that he will accept the massive pay rise that they are going to put on the table. They say that his current wage is £130,000-a-week (less than Theo Walcott) and they are intending to offer him £180,000-a-week. If there was even the slightest doubt that he wouldn’t stay at the Emirates then that will certainly change his mind!
Secondly, Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Barcelona have also contacted journalists to say that they are not talking to Ozil’s agents, and have no wish to buy him. Funnily enough, if they WERE ‘tapping him up’ right now it would be against every rule in the FIFA rule-book regarding transfers.
So can we forget these stupid made-up rumours and concentrate on doing the Treble, please?
