OZIL: I never wanted to play for Arsenal

Mesut Ozil never wanted to move to Arsenal, it is claimed.

Marca reports it was Ozil’s father that pushed his son towards the Gunners.

Ozil was involved in a bitter legal dispute with his father and then agent, who sued his son for £500,000 for loss of earnings on sponsorship deals.

The wrangling pair reached an out-of-court settlement, and it is thought they aren’t on speaking terms anymore.

The report says Ozil’s father, Mustafa, instigated the record-breaking £42.5m transfer from Real Madrid to Arsenal, even though the player wasn’t happy with the deal.

Ozil’s father made a sizeable profit from the deal before relations soured.
