Twitter in meltdown as new Mesut Ozil contract trends

A number of people on Twitter are claiming that a new contract is set to be signed by Mesut Ozil, in a deal which will see him stay at Arsenal until 2024.

The German international has become a key player once again following the return of Mikel Arteta as new head coach, and may be seen as a key player to the new philosophy that the Spaniard is building at the Emirates.

How much truth there is in the rumours is of course yet to be seen, but people on Twitter are frantically searching to find the source.

Excuse the amateur screenshot, but the first time I come across the report was below, and am as yet to find the initial source, but I would imagine that this was nothing more than gossip.

Arteta clearly sees importance in the German midfielder, and his performances have improved in 2020, and that agreeing to take a wage cut of 50% would bring him in line with our other players.

Should Ozil agree to take a wage cut from the summer, we would in theory be getting four years of Ozil for the price of two, which could allow the new boss to utilise his experience and allow time for youngsters like Emile Smith-Rowe or Joe Willock to stake a claim for the role in the long-term.

I believe that the club and the fans are buying into the project that Mikel Arteta is building at the Emirates, and should he see Ozil as key to his rebuild then who are we to argue?

      What about Ian Ure?

    Fake news…oh please let be!

    That’s non sense, he will keep his 350k wage til last pay check. He wil almost be 33 at end of next season.

    Can see him go 2 years to China which be a cultural experience and easy to adapt in a modern & hip city such as Shangai, paying 50M/year salary.

    It will be then time for him to get back to Turkey and play 2 years for Galatadlsaraï and retire there at 37 with 200M in his account!

    Hr is not staying!

    I really hope this is not true !

    What a bargain – if it’s true of course – but I have been told so many times not to believe what ANYONE says, so I won’t be collecting my winnings just yet!!!

    Patrick’s last paragraph sums it up completely – and the same goes if Arteta decides to let him go at the end of his contract, trust the man.

  8. ThirdManJW says:

    Obviously his supporters will love it, because Ozil, just like Wenger, must come first!

  9. Ken1945 says:

    TMJW if you would only read and digest what I have written, it might stop misunderstandings.

    Please read my last paragraph again and then explain how you think I am saying Ozil comes first?

    It’s MA who comes first and whatever he decides is fine with me – what about you?

    I hope this is not true. If it is, then Arteta will be losing it. He will be digging his own grave
