There’s usually a valid reason for players to not sign a new contract with their current team and they’d be understandable. But Mesut Ozil has picked a bizarre and outright ridiculous reason.
At the end of the season, Ozil’s contract expires with Arsenal and he’ll be free to join any other team. After the winter transfer window, clubs can start offering Ozil contracts but the Gunners might opt to sell him in the Winter Transfer Window.
The German International’s been offered a contract or two by the Gunners but the main sticking point’s been money, just like Sanchez, Ozil’s looking for around the £350k-a-week.
It’s just not the money or the desire to join Manchester United for the formal Real Madrid man that’s stopping him from sealing the deal. He desires to wear the number 10 shirt that has been of Jack Wilshire’s ever since he arrived at Arsenal.
With Mesut Ozil’s ridiculous asking, it’s highly likely that Wilshire’s going to be the one to be offer a new contract based on his current form
