Mesut Ozil is willing to leave Arsenal if Manchester United, Real Madrid or Barcelona are there to welcome him, and thinks that Jose Mourinho “is the best Coach he ever played for”.
According to Ciaran Kelly of the Manchester Evening News, the German still hopes to sign a new deal with the Gunners, but he wants a 30% hike in his wages, and he also wants to wear the Number 10 shirt.
Kelly claims that the Red Devils have yet to express any interest in Ozil, however. Then again, he wants to play for Jose Mourinho.
According to one of the MEN’s sources: “I know he is always in contact with Mourinho because he likes him. He thinks he is the best coach he ever played for. He has a special relationship with him.”
The German has struggled to start regularly of late, though he performed beautifully in a 5-2 ravaging of Everton at the weekend.
The former Schalke and Real Madrid man didn’t have a strong season last year, disappearing in too many big games, scoring “only” eight Premier League goals and adding nine assists last season.
