Football Club Barcelona looking to sign former Real Madrid player who make Barcelona’s midfield stronger just like Xavi did in his era. According to reports, The Catalans wants Mesut Ozil and are preparing a bid of £65 million to bring the German midfielder from Emirates stadium. Ozil’s future at Arsenal is not sure and his current contract has 18 months left.
Barcelona Bid £65 million for Mesut Ozil
Without Xavi Hernandez, Barcelona’s midfield is lacking that pace. Now, Barca wants a midfielder who can take place of Xavi and Mesut Ozil would be the perfect fix. The German footballer is receiving a whopping amount of £180,000 per week at Arsenal that makes him the highest paid player at Arsenal Football Club.
It is said that Ozil wants more than £250,000 a week and has demanded clarity on Wenger’s future before he makes a decision. It is unlikely for Ozil to sign a new deal with Arsenal as the club is not willing to pay as much as he wants. Wenger’s uncertain future at the club also could be a reason.
Europe’s top football clubs are taking interest in the World Cup winner and front-runner Barcelona is the most active club to sign him.
What will happen If Ozil joins Barcelona?
The rivalry of El Clasico will be at next level. Real Madrid fans would not like to see Ozil play for Barcelona. Do you think, Ozil should join Barcelona or any other club or stick to Arsenal?
