[Tweets] Arsenal fans in meltdown over latest transfer rumour
Arsenal fans have not been reacting well to reports suggesting that Mesut Ozil could be heading to Manchester United this summer.
Ozil’s future at Arsenal is in serious doubt as he’s approaching the final 12 months of his contract and so far we’ve been unable to thrash out fresh terms with the attacker.
Widespread reports suggest that Mesut is demanding in excess of £250,000-a-week – which would make him the highest paid player in the clubs history – but we’re yet to agree a deal.
If Ozil doesn’t commit himself to a new contract soon, we’ll have little choice but to cash in at the end of the season as the board are highly unlikely to risk losing him for nothing in 2018.
And it looks as though we could lose yet another key man to one of our rivals as Football London are reporting that Jose Mourinho is plotting a shock swoop for our German international and is keen to be reunited with Ozil at Old Trafford.
The two men enjoyed an excellent relationship during their time together at Real Madrid and Mourinho hasn’t hidden his admiration for Ozil after describing him as the best No.10 in the world.
Obviously the idea of losing Ozil to United hasn’t gone down well in north London as it brings back painful memories for Arsenal fans with Robin van Persie moving to Old Trafford back in 2012.
The thought of Mesut leaving the Emirates and lifting the Premier League title at United, under Mourinho, is sickening and it’s too much for some fans to take.
Personally I don’t think there’s any chance we’d agree to sell Ozil to that lot as the club must know how badly it would go down among an already disgruntled fan-base, but you just never know with Arsenal.
Check out a few reactions to this rumour below:

Mesut to United will ruin me

If we end up selling Ozil to United I'm probably done with football. Enough is enough. No point being a third tier bitch amongst friends.

@charles_watts the same Ozil that has been completely savaged by the press to 2 years solid. Oh but he's quality now United want him
