We Sold Ozil Because He Was Hawked To Arsenal By His Father – Florentino Perez


It seems to accusation and counter accusation surrounding the sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal will never end. The aftermath of Mesut Özil’s move to Arsenal has taken another twist after Florentino Perez revealed Mustafa Özil contacted Arsenal over the possibility of a move and not the club.

Özil completed a £42.4 million move to Arsenal on deadline day leading to angry Real Madrid fans and upset their players.

The club have come out with several reasons why the German left and now it has emerged that Real Madrid did not make first contact with Arsenal over Özil but it was the players father.

“It was the father of the player who made contact with Arsenal” – Florentino Perez told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

The Real president also confirmed the German wanted to leave the club and he would not keep an unhappy player nor sell a happy one putting an end to speculation regarding Angel Di Maria.

“No one will leave Real Madrid If they don’t want to go” Said Perez.

It is funny that Perez has said no one will leave Real Madrid if they do not want to. I will like to remind him of someone call Klaas Jan Hunterlaar who was sold when he never wanted to leave. How about Va Da Vaart?
