Arsenal fans laugh off Ozil speculation

A frankly ridiculous story has emerged from The Sun today, which states that Manchester United are eyeing a shock move for Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil- having been encouraged by the lack of progress on negotiations for a new contract.

Ozil’s deal expires in 2018 and the Gunners are desperate for him to extend his deal in North London and, whilst the player himself is happy to put pen to paper, so far an agreement has not been reached- which has left Arsenal fans frantic.

Despite seeing a wealth of top players leave for rivals clubs in recent years, Arsenal fans seem fairly confident that their prized asset will not follow the route of a certain Robin Van Persie to Old Trafford and have laughed off the speculation.

They’d certainly be left with an ample serving of egg in their face in the German World Cup winner did decide to jump ship, although we can all agree that’s extremely unlikely to happen.
