Man United transfer news: Jose Mourinho` to solve problematic ‘disappearing’ No 10 role with £42m Germany international
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is still keen on a move for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.
According to the Telegraph, the Portuguese tactician wants to bring Ozil to Old Trafford to address the problematic No 10 position.
Mourinho is understood to be frustrated by Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s inconsistent form. The experienced manager accused the midfielder of pulling a “disappearing” act this season.
Ozil has been closely linked with a move away from Arsenal after failing to pen a new deal with the Gunners. The 29-year-old could even end up leaving the club for free next summer.
Mourinho refused to rule out making a move for Ozil when asked during Friday’s press conference.
The former Chelsea manager has a strong relationship with Mesut Ozil. The pair won the La Liga together during their spell at Real Madrid.
The Germany international went onto join Arsenal in September 2013 for £42 million.
