"I am ready to join Manchester United next summer"...Arsenal main man claims

Mesut Ozil is keen to join Manchester United from Arsenal next summer, according to reports.

The Sunday Mirror claims that the Germany international will opt to run down his contract, which expires next summer, and the midfielder’s camp have already been in touch with United to sound out a potential move to Old Trafford.

The report also claims that Jose Mourinho remains an admirer of Ozil, who he managed at Real Madrid, and will tell United’s hierarchy to work on a deal.

Ozil, who will be available on a free transfer, has reportedly demanded a £250,000-a-week salary from Arsenal.

Inter are also interested in a deal for Ozil, but the 28-year-old’s preference is to stay in the Premier League and join a club who are looking to win major titles.

In his autobiography, Gunning for Greatness, Ozil credited Mourinho for giving him the confidence to make an impact at Real Madrid.

‘Real Madrid isn’t too big a move for you. Real Madrid is the only right move. Trust me. I’ll turn you into a regular player,’ said Mourinho.

‘And then all the doors will be open to you. You’ll be able to show the world what you’re capable of.

‘And, believe me, that’s a huge amount.’
