Mesut Ozil Open To United or Chelsea Switch
By Football Talk.
Germany star Mesut Ozil has revealed he would be keen on a move to either Manchester United or Chelsea this summer. With only one year remaining on his Werder Bremen contract, he could be snapped up for a bargain price of £15m and the play-maker has made it clear he would be open to a switch to the premier league, but will concentrate on the World Cup before deciding on his future.
“The World Cup is all that matters at the moment,” he told the Sun. “When I get back we can think about my future, but for now it’s not something I want to give a lot of thought to. To the top players, the Premier League is attractive.
“You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved over the last five years and you see it would be easy to be successful at two clubs like that. I see what Michael Ballack achieved at Chelsea and the quality of players he played with and the temptation becomes obvious.
“Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England always at the top and of course that’s attractive, but the same is true for La Liga. They’re the strongest leagues in the world.”
Ozil has been one of the stand-out players at the World Cup so far and has been linked with a move to several of Europe’s elite, including Premier League trio Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United. But it seems Ozil’s comments have ruled out a move to the Emirates leaving Chelsea and United to do battle for his signature.
