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