Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to reminisce about his debut at Schalke 04.
The Germany international kicked off his career in Gelsenkirchen in August 2006.
Ozil posted a picture of himself looking onto the Veltins Arena along with the caption, “A place I will never forget.”
The 27-year-old spent four years at Schalke 04 before moving to Werder Bremen. Ozil later moved to Wolfsburg before signing for Real Madid. The midfield playmaker joined Arsenal on a club record €42 million from Madrid back in September 2013.
The Germany international’s current deal with Arsenal expires in 2018. According to the Sun, Ozil was in talks over £160,000-a-week in deal which will keep him at Arsenal until 2019.
