Manchester United favourite Dimitar Berbatov believes Jadon Sancho should decline a move to Old Trafford when the transfer window reopens this summer. The England international has been in superb form for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga this term where he has amassed 14 goals and 15 assists.
His progress has caught the eye of several elite European clubs but United have been touted as the favourites to sign him in a potential club-record deal. While the move has been invited by several former United players, Berbatov feels Sancho should stay put at the German outfit rather than tackling the added competition at United.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil is set to walk away for free next term as the club has decided not to renew the deal, as per reports. Ozil is the biggest earner at the Emirates on a 350,000 pounds a week deal.

The German joined the Gunners
from Real Madrid in 2013, but the last few seasons have been very tough for the

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright believes that the Arsenal
team needs to improve as a unit. He said that despite making all the signings
the team has failed to improve collectively and this is why they are struggling
in the Premier League.
Ian Wright said the team needs to learn how to defend
collectively and that there is so much space between the midfield and the
defence when they lose the ball. He believes that this is the main reason that
they have conceded so many goals since the start of the season.

The growth for Arsenal has
moved far away from the requirement of Ozil to the team. They have moved in
such a direction that they have lost the interest of keeping Mesut Ozil in
their team. There was a time when every fan of Arsenal had an unclear hope that
he might be sold during the transfer. But the contract between him and the club
made the situation absolutely impossible for him to move on. All doubts were
cleared about his transfer to any other club when the transfer windows for
Europe were shut down. Mesut Ozil continued to play for the Arsenal club.
Unai Emery is the head coach for Arsenal. He claimed that they need a player like Ozil, but if the club has to keep him, then what is basically the alternative that they can offer to a man of such stature. But now, when Ozil is playing with the club, the head coach, Unai Emery, has declared that they need to have him for the future games. He is trying to make the best out of the worst one. According to the words of Emery, if the club needs to keep Ozil forcefully, then it is a must for them to take out as much as possible from him. It is also important for them to take much effort for making Mesut Ozil feel that he is truly needed by the club.
Unai Emery said that he will get every chance to make a cameo, but for a player who is most needed by the club cannot stand against the Spurs. He said that they have come up with a nicer formula regarding his play. Emery stated that the club has to find out some useful ways by which they can make him play if he has to spend the entire season with them.
has been reported that the Arsenal coach, during the finals of the Europa
league was insulted by the popular player Mesut Ozil. Power ego is a
contradiction for discipline in sports, and the players using power has been a conflict
between them and the coaches and managers of several teams. There have been
many such cases where the coaches and manager had to wrestle against the power
of players. Recently, the incident of the conflict between Unai Emery the
manager and the Arsenal star player Mesut Ozil has come to light.
was brought into notice that Mesut Ozil has been disrespecting Unai Emery on
the field. There are reports that suggest that the Arsenal midfielder lost his
cool and repeatedly kept on insulted the Boss of Arsenal by shouting, that he
not the coach of his team. This happened during the match against Chelsea when
Ozil was floating in the downstream as the team was on the verge of losing the
final match of Europa League. The team performed terribly and was beaten by the
score of 4-1. During the match, the midfielder was brought back in the second
half and subbed off by his coach, which resulted in widespread of whispers of
his miserable performance in the final game.
Ozil’s presence wasn’t constant in the team throughout the season, though he has been a former star player of Real Madrid there were instances that he wasn’t always included by Emery because of his work-rate which was reported to be low. Even after this, the coach of Spanish football team let him open in the finale of the Europa league, following Alexandre Lacazette along with Pierre-Emerick.
walked out without a trophy this season and Mesut Ozil enters the transfer list
as a consequence of his behavior in the final game of the Europa League.
Arsenal are reportedly mulling a transfer for Napoli ace Lorenzo Insigne
according to reports from Italy. Top Italian tabloid Calciomercato reveals that
the Gunners are looking to make a huge statement by signing the attacker in the
Unai Emery has made no secret
of his intentions to sign a wide man with the club lacking in that respect.
Emery has used Mesut Ozil, HenrikhMkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi on the flanks but
none of these playershave provided the
needed consistency in the wide positions.
It had been rumoured that the
club was in the running for Lille’s
forward Nicolas Pepe but the news have
fizzled out in recent months. Ivan Perisic was close to a loan move in the
January transfer window but it failed to happen in the last minute.
Insigne is an upgrade to these
players and has emerged a real leader in the Napoli side in the past three
seasons. He has been able to form a good attacking partnership with Dries Mertens
and Jose Callejon in the attack for the Naples outfit.
The 27-year-old is blessed with pace, trickery and an unerring eye for
goal. He is also famous for his
brilliant set-piece ability and uses his
small stature effectively to beat opposition defenders. A transfer fee has been
touted as Napoli is understood to value the forward within the region of €100
Arsenal would be getting a top class player if they can complete the move for the Italian international. €100 million is certainly too much for the player but Napoli should be able to accept a transfer fee of €60-€70million for the striker.
Insigne has been impressive
this season scoring 13 goals and contributing a further 7 assists as Napoli lie
second in the Serie A table.
Mesut Ozil, the midfielder from Arsenal have invited the Recep
Tayyip Erdogan, the controversial president of Turkey to his wedding. Ozil had
been criticized the previous year after he met with Erdogan. He and Ilkay
Gundogan, the German teammate had been pictured with the leader.
Ultimately, this caused him to retire from international
football. However, Ozil had claimed that he has been the victim of disrespect and
racism. Reports suggest that Amine Gulse, the fiancé of Ozil met Erdogan at
Ataturk Airport for inviting the leader him to their wedding, in person.
Mesut Ozil is known to have been dating Amine Gulse, the winner
of Miss Turkey 2014 since 2016. Also, they are known to have got engaged in
2018. Ozil has announced about his retirement last year from international
football. He had struck out a comment that he took this to be unfair
discrimination regarding his meeting with Erdogan, the Turkish president. Ozil
had been the part of the national team of Germany which had exited from the
World Cup of 2018 at the group stage. He had been criticized for his
performance and also for meeting with the Turkish president who had been blamed
for abuse of human rights.
The Arsenal player is related to Turkey and has also given a defensive statement about his actions. This is the first time that he addressed the matter publicly. He says that for him, getting licked with the president wasn’t about elections or politics; it was simply about respecting the highest office of the country of his family origin.
He goes on to comment that his job is that of a football player
and not a politician. Hence, the meeting hadn’t been a political endorsement.
Mesut Ozil is a world cup winner and an asset for
Arsenal but that might not be enough for him to hold onto steady spurts of
success. He was captain for a week after which he was seen to be behind
Kolasinac in the next. Opinions about him remain divided which showcase the
sudden changes that happened in his role in the game.
Indeed, the highlight of his recent achievements had
been being chosen as captain which did not last long after that and he was soon
struggling to even keep his place in the midfield, Sead Kolasinac being chosen
to play in midfield before him. He is being seen as a fringe figure who plays
under Unai Emery. He was even dropped from plans of including him in the team
that was formed for Manchester City.
The reason is that the Spanish coach of the team is yet
to be convinced about the worth of the 30-year-old player and whether it would
be inconsistent to include him in the game. For such reasons, Ozil would have
to be satisfied with being on the bench in regular intervals till then.
The last Sunday match that Arsenal had against Manchester City saw him on the bench. However, his stint might come to an end soon in north London if he is not utilized well. It is also being said that Ozil could have provided the inspiration that Arsenal needed, a reason that might have led to their defeat.
It is hoped that Ozil would be able to contribute more
since Arsenal still needs to secure a spot in the Champions League. They are in
the last 32nd position in the Europa League and it remains to be seen how far
they can go up in the competition 2019-20.
