After the last few months always sounded as speculation in the British media, in the end the German midfielder, Mesut Ozil officially left the club he had been sheltering for 8 years, Arsenal.
Yes, the speculation of Ozil’s departure from Arsenal has actually been heard since the last two editions of the transfer market. This speculation is related to the fact that the Turkish-blooded playmaker has rarely had the opportunity to play in the Gunners’ first team in recent seasons.
However, as is known in the end the 32-year-old player remained at the Emirates Stadium.
So, during the last few days, the same issue has blown again. In fact, it is said that Ozil has terminated his contract with Arsenal in order to join his hometown club in Turkey, Fenerbahce for nothing.
These rumors have continued to develop over the past few weeks, but there has been no official statement from Arsenal. However, the transfer rumors did materialize after Mesut Ozil himself confirmed it.
Yes, the former Real Madrid player admitted that he had officially left Arsenal to join Turkish club Fenerbahce.
“I am very enthusiastic and happy. I am a Fenerbahce fan. As a Fenerbahce fan, God allows me to wear that jersey. I will do my best,”
“Tonight I will come to Istanbul with my family. The flight times are not yet clear. I will be there tonight.” Ozil said to the Turkish media, NTV.
Meanwhile, on the one hand, the Turkish Super League club also confirmed that the transfer process for Mesut Ozil was complete.
“Negotiations have started on the transfer of professional player Mesut Ozil,” Fenerbahce wrote in a release on their official website.
This transfer had been predicted by many parties before, considering that this season the German player was not included in the Gunners squad for both the English Premier League and the Europa League.
Ozil’s departure can be said to reduce the burden on Arsenal Management in spending on player salaries, considering that former Madrid is the player with the highest rate currently at Arsenal.
