Jose Mourinho is apparently ‘highly confident’ of signing Mesut Ozil from Arsenal during the coming January transfer window (via The Independent).
It’s a deal which would be a blow to every Arsenal fan if Jose Mourinho manages to poach one of the club’s star men on a cut-price transfer.
Mesut Ozil has attracted more than his fair share of criticism from Gunners fans but he’d get a lot more if he were to join Manchester United.
The German’s current contract at the Emirates is due to expire in the summer and it seems that a number of clubs are keen to sign the World Cup winner.
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United are reportedly ‘highly confident’ of concluding a deal after Mourinho and Ozil worked together at Real Madrid several years ago.

The German has been a key player for Arsenal in the last four years but has barely featured this season and is reportedly refusing to sign a new deal with the club.
Losing Mesut Ozil on a free transfer is a blow but losing Ozil to a Premier League rival is a huge loss. Let’s hope that this is just paper talk and if the Gunners have to sell Ozil, they will do it abroad.
