Jose Mourinho planning an audacious summer raid on Arsenal
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning a sensational swoop for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal are not making any progress in their desire to sign the German on to a new contract, and he is likely leaving the Emirates when the summer transfer window opens. Ozil’s representatives want a deal worth around £250,000 per week, but the Gunners are only willing to offer the player £200,000 per week.
Ozil was one of Jose Mourinho’s favourite players when he was at Real Madrid, and he was reportedly unhappy when the club sold the midfielder without his blessing. At the time Madrid claim that the offer from Arsenal was too good to turn down, that is why they sold the player without consulting with Mourinho.
Arsenal are desperate to keep him at the emirates as they intend to rebuild their new team around him. They also have Alexis Sanchez contract situation to handle as the Chilean is yet to agree a new deal.
Mourinho wants Ozil to add creative spark to his team that has struggled to score goals this season.
