Rewind to six months ago, when the 2016/17 Premier League season was nearing it's end, and Arsenal fans were scared about losing Mesut Ozil in the summer.
Now, they're gradually coming to terms with the idea of selling him in January.
Not only has the Germany international lost his place in the starting XI, but whenever he does play, he just doesn't look very bothered.
Arsenal are now looking for potential buyers in the winter transfer window and among those interested are Inter Milan and Manchester United.
Ozil joining Jose Mourinho at United sounds unthinkable at the moment, but with every passing week fresh reports insist it's possible.
According to the Mirror's John Cross, for example, Ozil has told his Arsenal teammates that he expects to move to Manchester in January.
Such a revelation would have undoubtedly infuriated Arsene Wenger's men, although they are apparently sick and tired of Ozil's lack of intensity and enthusiasm.
Ozil's poor performance against Watford last weekend, in which he missed a simple one-on-one and bottled an aerial challenge, saw Arsenal's players finally turn on him.
But the truth of the matter is that no one knows the truth; even Ozil has kept his mouth shut, bar a somewhat untimely Instagram post on Friday night.
Ozil posted a picture with a set of Dr. Dre Beats headphones that had, "My life my rules," engraved on them, not to mention a caption that read, "I do it my way."
Only until the 29-year-old speaks out will we know what's really happening, but a close friend of his now appears to have shed some light.
The Sun report that Ozil is 'angry' about the false campaign that's linking him with a January move to United.
Furthermore, his close friend said: "Mesut has not had any contract offer from Arsenal. There were talks about a modest pay rise last season but all those talks ended in March.
"There's been nothing since then. At the time there was uncertainty over Arsene Wenger's future so the conversations stopped.
"He has not been offered £300,000 a week - in fact, he has no offers on the table from Arsenal or any other club.
"And he is not seeking to become the highest-paid player in the Premier League. That's not his aim."
Another twist in the tale. Wenger claims Ozil is genuinely happy at Arsenal and wants to stay, but there's simply no telling what will happen between now and next summer.
