Ian Wright has stated that Mesut Ozil would flourish and perform better at Manchester United amid reported interest from Jose Mourinho as doubts remain over his future in Arsenal.
Ozil is out of contract at the end of the season, and the Germany international playmaker is no closer to signing a new deal.
“I think he’s that type of player who will drag a team by its bootlaces through a game, but if your team is playing well, he’s going to sprinkle stardust all over the place,” Wright told Sky Sports when asked if he thought Ozil would perform better at United, adding, “With the players he’d be playing with at Man Utd as well, he is unbelievable. He is just awesome, and with the right team, and the right movement in front of him, he is easily one of the best I’ve seen. He’s amazing.”
He continued, “Is this difficult to say? Yeah. And we can’t keep arguably two of the best players, arguably in the history of the club, ability-wise. It’s sad times.”
