Premier League transfer news: Barcelona to offer superstar to Tottenham for their star player and more - November 13, 2018
#4 Ozil had offers from Asia
Mesut Ozil signed an extension with Arsenal in February and it reportedly makes him earn £350,000-per-week in wages now. And now, his agent Dr. Erkut Sogut has revealed the reason for the German getting such a big offer from the Gunners.
The North London outfit are renowned for not breaking their wage structure no matter what. However, they went against their usual rule for Ozil and according to his agent, it is due to the former Real Madrid’s market value in the football fraternity.
‘We had some really big offers from Asia, there were some crazy offers. But for Mesut, money was by no means the biggest factor,’ he said.
‘His market is worldwide. The club makes money out of these players as well, but it came down to what was in his heart.
‘We were free to sign with other clubs and in the end, Mesut loves the club. I put everything to him and he just said, “This is my home, I want to be here”.’
