The German’s agent stated: “We must not forget that you must first negotiate with Arsenal so that Özil can leave in this market. He still has a contract until the end of the season”
Mesut Özil ends contract with Arsenal in June and from now on he can negotiate his signing with another club. The problem is that, due to the bad relationship with his coach, Mikel Arteta, he has not played for months. It is because of that wants to finalize his departure from the ‘gunners’ in this same winter market.
The English press claims that his departure to Fenerbahce is very close. However, his agent Erkut Sogut spoke out on the subject. “We must not forget that you must first negotiate with Arsenal so that Özil can leave in this market. He still has a contract until the end of the season.”
“Without talking to them, you could only sign a pre-contract for next season. We have to do it the right way we will talk with your family to close the process as soon as possible“Sogut was quoted as saying by the daily AS.
Negotiations with Fenerbahce are advanced and a manager of the Turkish team recognized AS that “it is a matter of time.” In addition, he would have explained that the club will only pay 3.5 million euros per year to Özil, while the rest of his salary, another 1.5 million more, will be paid by sponsors.
The intention of the Turkish club is to make the signing of the German star official in the coming days. Even Özil himself launched a wink on Instagram with a publication from the city of Istanbul. Now it’s all a matter of getting Arsenal to let him go to Turkey for free.
