Gareth Bale's expected arrival at Madrid has everyone there excited. Well, everybody except Mesut Ozil.
It's hard to imagine Ozil in another jersey, as he is so popular in Madrid and plays such an important role on that team. He had 35 assists for club and country last season and is one of the best playmakers in the world.
Still though, Madrid would need to shake things up to make room for everybody. And Ozil could just be the odd man out, especially with new arrival Isco commanding playing time and Luca Modric playing so well.
Manchester United has thus far been stifled in their transfer pursuits, losing out on Bale and Fabregas while deals for the Everton duo have not panned out.
Manchester United have expressed an interest in the 24-year-old reportedly being told that Ozil is there's for a fee of £38 million.
Mesut Ozil could be the answer to their problems. Ozil and Van Persie would be a lethal combination and, as hard to imagine as it is, the Dutchman's goal total could even increase. If Manchester United were to acquire Ozil, they would in my opinion proclaim the tag as the favourites to win the Premier League again.
However, there are several other teams that he would fit into. Although United are the frontrunners, it would not be surprising to see another team challenge.
Arsenal would be a dark-horse since they have not made a high-profile signing despite the promises of mega spending by chief executive Ivan Gazidis.
Ozil could just be the one. And of course, there's always a chance that City or Chelsea could spoil the fun - with City's deep pockets and Mourinho's connections.
However, Manchester United would surely be Ozil's preferred destination, and to date are the only ones to express real interest in bringing him to England.
Regardless of where Ozil ends up, he would be good for the Premier League. He is a classy player who would most likely lead the league in assists. If Ozil comes to England, he could transform his team into one of the league's best, and make everybody around him better.
