It has been one of the longest running sagas of the season, but it seems that the noise surrounding Mesut Ozil’s plight at Arsenal could soon end.
Unfortunately for the midfielder this is not good news.
Ozil has not played in almost a year, and North Londoners believe it will take him too long to get back in shape, so they intend to keep him out of the way.
Realistically, what that means is that unless Ozil decides to pack his bags in January, he will spend the rest of the season doing what he has done for the first half of the season: training with no chance to play.
At an estimated £ 350,000 per week and the top earner at the club, Ozil may well go out of his way to screw up the club and see to the rest of the season by continuing to be paid by Arsenal for doing absolutely nothing.
It would reflect poorly on him, although he surely won’t be too upset if he knows he can get a deal elsewhere during the summer.
