Jose Mourinho has told Mesut Ozil to weather the storm with regards to the heavy criticism he is taking from the English media, and that he is going to try to sign him next season, according to sensational reports emanating from Spain.
Javier Matallanas, a journalist working for A.S, has claimed that the Special One is planning to take advantage of the fact that Ozil is struggling to settle at the Emirates, by taking him to Stamford Bridge a year after he was bought for £42million.
Matallanas highlights the fact that Mourinho has a reputation for staying in contact with former players and, given the fact that he and Ozil enjoyed a healthy relationship whilst the two were at Real Madrid, he would be inclined to want to work with the German international again.
Despite impressing in the initial stages of his Arsenal career, Ozil has looked jaded and off the pace of late. Gunners fans have heaped heavy criticism on him as a result, and talks of training ground rifts have emerged in recent weeks.
Of course the chances of any transfer happening this summer are highly unlikely, least of all to one of Arsenal’s biggest rivals. Nevertheless it’s a situation that should be watched with interest.
