Mesut Ozil unhappy at Fenerbache eyes MLS move

 

Mesut Ozil is reportedly unhappy at Fenerbache, just eight months after joining the Turkish side from Arsenal.

The 32-year-old made the switch to the Istanbul based side in January as a free agent, after Arsenal agreed to terminate the final six months of his contract to save on his £350,000-per-week wages.

Now it has been reported by Diario AS that the playmaker is open to a move away despite having three years left on his current deal.

He has fallen out of favour at the Turkish giants with speculation that clubs in Qatar and the MLS are considering a move for the former German international.

It comes despite Ozil stating when he arrived at the club: ‘I was always a Fenerbache fan, this is a dream come true for me.’

After joining in January, he was limited to just ten appearances last season after suffering a ruptured ankle ligament in March.

So far this season, the midfielder has started one game, left on the bench for another while missing their last match with a groin injury.

It is said though that manager Vitor Pereira doesn’t have full trust in Ozil and prefers 20-year-old Muhammet Gumuskaya, who played instead of the German in both Europa League qualification games for the club.

There were reports of a rift between the player and manager before the game he missed through injury, with rumours then accelarating after Ozil met up with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamed Al Sani.

The player’s agent Erkut Sogut though has rubbished claims on reports he wants to move Qatar.

Sogut said: ‘Mesut Ozil grew up with the love of Fenerbahce and now he feels the pride of wearing that shirt.

‘He is very happy, he always gives his best for the success of Fenerbahce.

‘There are some footballers who come to Turkey because they cannot find another club. Mesut came because he always planned for this and wanted it. It was not for money.’

The move to cancel his £350,000-per-week contract saved Arsenal an estimated £7m.
