Mesut Ozil offered MLS chance, but Gunners would have to subsidize his salary.
Mesut Ozil could be offered a chance to resurrect his career in the MLS next year. However, Arsenal would have to subsidize his wage.
The German has fallen out of favour with Unai Emery and hasn’t made the squad in the last five games. He has some support from fans and pundits alike, but Emery recently revealed that the decision to leave him out has the backing of the club’s owners.
Ozil insists that he wasn’t looking to leave the club until his current deal expires. But he may change his mind after learning everyone at the club wants him gone.
Teams in the MLS have reportedly open talks with his representatives to try and bring the German to the US.
Express Sports claims that DC United want Ozil to replace Wayne Rooney who is set to make a return to English football with Derby County. Also, LA Galaxy wants the German to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic who looks to be on the move.
David Beckham’s Inter Miami is another alternative as the former England midfielder is looking for a marquee signing.
Ozil’s current salary of £350,000-a-week is higher than any MLS team can afford. If the German is finally convinced to make that move, then Arsenal would probably have to contribute up to 60 per cent of his wage.
