Arsenal's capture of Mesut Ozil was heralded as one of the great coups in Premier League transfer window but, just days after his move to north London, it soon became apparent why the player was allowed to leave Real Madrid.
It seemed odd that Real Madrid would be willing to sell one of their top performers, even to the tune of £42 million, but Ozil's departure from the Santiago Bernabeu was reported to be related to his off-field exertions, rather than his on-field performances.
Shortly after his transfer to Arsenal, reports in Spain emerged claiming Ozil exhausted himself chasing women, and was more focused on his various conquests than performing to his optimum for Real Madrid.
The 24-year-old has, of course, since denied these allegations and insists he will give his all for Arsenal, rejecting suggestions he arrives at the Emirates Stadium with the reputation as a playboy.
