Manchester United officials have confirmed to a journalist who goes by the name Jimmy Chilides that they are not interested in signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid. Jimmy Chilides tweeted few minutes ago that Manchester United have confirmed to him that they are not in for the player. If true, this clears the way for Arsenal to sign Mesut Ozil.
Earlier this morning, Marca a Spanish paper reported that Ozil as decided not to join Arsenal telling Real Madrid he prefers a move to Manchester United who were thought to be interested in his services earlier this summer. Although PSG are also according to reports interested in the player, they have also come out to deny they will be signing the player.
A telegraph journalist who goes by the name Mark Ogden also confirmed via twitter that the player had been offered to both Manchester United and Manchester City but bot rejected the chance to sign the player and he does not expect any twist right now.
This will surely be good news for Arsenal fans who have been left frustrated by the lack of activities of their club so far in the current summer transfer window with the only signings made so far been Mathieu Flamini and Yaya Sanogo both on free transfers.
