Date given when Mesut Ozil move should be completed

Mesut Ozil is currently in mandatory quarantine in Turkey and should complete his transfer from Arsenal to Fenerbahce on Friday.

He flew into the country on Sunday as he brings down the curtain on his time as an Arsenal player.

Having not played any football in the first half of this season, he was set to stay out of first-team action again if he had remained at the Emirates.

However, instead of waiting until the summer to leave Arsenal, the German has decided to move to the Turkish giants.

Ozil is a childhood Fenerbahce fan even though he grew up in Germany and has long been touted with a move to the club.

Sky Sports says that his move is being held up by the period of self-isolation he has been forced to undergo and he should be able to sign his new deal by Friday this week.

His move away from the club will help Arsenal save some money as the German was earning £350,000 a week at the Emirates.

He will now earn a modest £67,300 a week in Turkey, which translates to just £3.5 million a year.

Both teams haven’t announced the move, but it seems that it is all done now considering the midfielder’s social media activities.

    Atleast we’ll have peace at Arsenal. He was the news maker at Arsenal for wrong reasons. But we still have to deal with the issue of Willian because it’s a similar scenario to that of Ozil

    How come no news on Sokratis? His contract was terminated on mutual consent. The club has done well to get rid of 2 deadwoods on high wages. Now Mustafi should be next on the chopping board. Hopefully Bellerin will also leave for PSG. I wish we could get rid of Pepè too but that’s just asking for too much I guess.

      There were a couple of articles yesterday afternoon, QD. You’ve just gotta go back, way back 😆
      I agree, Mustafi should be next, but no doubt we’ll let him go for nada!!

        Seems I missed the articles @Sue. Unfortunately with Mustafi’s massive wages we were always going to struggle to find a buyer. Anyway, I’ll still be thankful if he leaves on a free. It would also be great if we stopped signing deadwoods and putting them on huge wages.

          After last night’s fixtures – do you think the Mancs can win the league?
