Mesut Ozil’s actions after the final whistle will have worried a few Arsenal fans

Jose Mourinho refused to rule out a move for the German playmaker before their victory at the Emirates on Saturday

Mesut Ozil fuelled further speculation that he wants a move to Man United after he made a beeline to the Red Devils bench following Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat.

The German international has been linked with a reunion with Jose Mourinho once his contract expires in the summer.

Mourinho and Ozil worked together at Real Madrid and the Portuguese boss has refused to rule out a move for the playmaker.

And it appears the feeling could be mutual after the 29-year-old went to embrace United’s backroom staff when walking off the field.

At the full-time whistle, Ozil also shared a quiet word with Anthony Martial.

One fan in the crowd then recorded Ozil heading straight over to United’s bench while his Arsenal team-mates walked towards the dressing room.



Reports from Spain claim that Barcelona have thrown their hat in the ring to sign Ozil on a free.

Clubs in Europe can hold talks with Ozil in January and agree a pre-contract over a move in the following summer.

But United remain favourites for his signature and Mourinho was asked about the potential of signing him before the clash at the Emirates.

The good old days

A smiling Mourinho replied: “No comment.”

He added: “That’s football. They finish their contracts.

“Sometimes players decide to go in this direction, which is the right that they have.”
