Mesut Ozil will reject Manchester United and Arsenal and sign for Real Madrid, says his father.

The Werder Bremen star lit up the World Cup with his classy displays for Germany, and has since been linked with a move to a number of Europe's top-clubs.

Madrid is understood to have always been the 21-year-old's preferred destination, and Werder have reportedly already turned down a bid from the Spanish giants for the playmaker.

Werder General Manager Klaus Allofs has now laid down an ultimatum to Real if they wish to prise Ozil to the Bernabeu this summer.

“The facts are pretty clear. If a club is looking to sign Mesut to play Champions League, then that club needs to make a decision before Wednesday," he told Deutsche Presseagentur.

"If Mesut Ozil is a player of Werder Bremen on Wednesday, we are going to play him against Sampdoria."

But the former Schalke midfielder will be available on a free transfer next year when his current contract expires, and his father has revealed that an agreement is already in place to sign for Real.

"We promised that if Bremen keep Mesut for now, next year year he will join a free," Mustapha Ozil told Turkish newspaper Hurriyet.

"Mesut and I stayed at the chalet of Florentino Perez in Madrid, he invited us there and everything was resolved quickly. We were impressed by his willingness to help my child play for his club,

"My son has always said that the only club he wanted to go to was Real Madrid ."
