Arsenal star Mesut Ozil caused a stir on social media after he hinted that he could be tempted in returning to the Bundesliga.
Ozil was taking part in a Q&A session on Twitter when he was asked if he is thinking about returning to Germany.
The Germany international of Turkish origin decided to send the following tweet.

The tweet did not go down particularly well with Gooners but Ozil does still have two-years remaining on his contract and did recently reveal that he is fully focused on Arsenal.
He may even extend his contract after the European Championships.
Ozil said: “I know nothing about the speculation. I’ll focus first on the national team.
“After Euro 2016 I’ll hold talks (with Arsenal) because Arsenal are my first port of call.
“My contract still has two more years to run.”
The Arsenal star will compete in the European Championships for Germany this summer and has been called up to the 23-man squad.
Euro 2016 is the only trophy currently on offer for 27-year-old to lift this season after failing to win any silverware for the Gunners this season.
