There are currently two years left to run on the Arsenal contract of our creator-in-chief Mesut Ozil (the same time that is left on that of Alexis Sanchez as well by the way), so of course Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board were hoping to persuade the German to sign a new contract this summer, but so far there has been no news of it happening.
We may just have learned why, as The Sun is reporting that our brilliant play maker is thinking about making his return to La Liga and the club we signed him from, Real Madrid.
Ozil seems to enjoy his life in London and after a sometimes shaky start to his Premier League career he has proven himself to be one of the in that difficult number 10 position, but the problem is that his ability has not been rewarded with enough success on the pitch and our manager doing his usual impression of a man who has no idea that there is a transfer window open there is not a massive sign of that changing.
Of course we do have a couple of weeks of the window left and Wenger may still make a big signing or two before it closes. If not though, we will have to hope that Ozil and the rest of the current squad can prove the Frenchman right and win the Premier League title that has not been ours for over a decade.
If not, do you think it will be Ozil will be saying adios to Arsenal and Hola to Madrid?
