Mesut Özil snubs MLS offer to continue playing career in Europe

January 6, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The German footballer has not played a single game for Arsenal since March 7, 2020. Now, the midfielder seems set to end his stay at the Emirates.

From being a Ballon D'Or contender to being completely snubbed by his coach. Mesut Özil seems to be living his final days at Arsenal, and he will snub a hefty offer from the MLS to fulfill a childhood dream.

The German midfielder, who has not played for the English club in almost a year, is set to leave London to follow the path of his ancestors, as Turkish club Fenerbahce have offered him a three-year deal to become their new player as soon as possible.

Özil was one of Arsenal's best-paid players since his arrival to the Emirates, but after hitting a dip in form since the 2016-17 season, the German player will no longer have to deal with life under Mikel Arteta.

Özil's disappointing performances started in the 2017-18 season, where he was only able to play 35 games and score five goals. Since then, the former Real Madrid playmaker has played 58 matches in three seasons, and to top it all, he was not included in Arsenal's squad for the ongoing campaign, reaching a new low point in his career.

In order to fulfill his dream of playing for his boyhood club, Özil has turned down a massive offer to become D.C. United's public image for the next five years. Moreover, he was also going to be handed an executive position once he hung up his boots. Sources indicate that Özil will be collecting over 5 million euros per season once he signs his new deal with the Turkish side.
