After many rumors of David Beckham saving Mesut Ozil from Arsenal’s bench, the German has started to play again and is not looking to move anymore
Like his club, Mesut Özil has had a difficult season. The 31-year-old midfielder was first on the bench, and even playing with the reserve team under Unai Emery before enjoying the joys of the starting lineup under the orders of Mikel Arteta. Almost leaving Arsenal this winter, he finally stayed at the club, and this will remain the case until the end of his contract (June 2021), reveals his agent.
“He still has 15 months left and by then he will stay at Arsenal, that’s for sure. He will stay until the end of his contract. There is no chance he will leave. He arrives at the end of this contract, he will then be 32 years old. He will be a free agent and that’s not a bad situation. He’ll probably have a hundred million followers on social media by then, his marketing will be more important by then. At 32, he can still continue to play football at the highest level for the next two or three years. I am looking at all the options to get the best deal for him. The options are coming now. Maybe he will stay and have a new contract with Arsenal. If the club doesn’t make an offer, he can’t stay. If he receives an offer from the club, he will consider it, “assures Inews Erkut Sogut. The German international receives a salary of around $400,000 per week.
