We all witnessed how Arsenal managed to land the coup of the season in the shape of 42.5m signing Ozil, who managed to stun the world with his magnificent and amazing performance against Sunderland winning the man of the match from many critics.
Arsene Wenger told how the negotiations were difficult in landing the midfield maestro, but it’s even more amazing how Ozil managed to snub Arsenal’s arch rivals Manchester United.
Arsenal finally won the race for signing Ozil. It was revealed by many sources that Ozil was offered to Manchester United but they ignored to land the midfielder. But it has been revealed that it was the other way around. Today Carlo Ancelotti revealed the real piece after breaking his silence.
He said, “Nobody leaves Madrid if they don’t want to leave. Ozil thought he had a lot of competition for places and asked to leave. It doesn’t happen to everyone. The coaching staff’s decision was to let Ozil leave. We received a good bid from Manchester United and Arsenal; everyone was satisfied. We wish him all the best. ”
As you can see that Ozil chose Arsenal and not Manchester United while Manchester United managed to sign Fellaini for 27.5m. Paying 4m extra for his buyout clause. 1-0 Arsenal
