Real Madrid have deal in place to re-sign Arsenal star Mesut Ozil

Arsenal transfer news: Mesut Ozil Amine Gulse

The details regarding the contract has been released by whistle-blowing website Football Leaks (via Goal).

The La Liga giants  were very keen to prevent Ozil from returning to La Liga in anything other than a white shirt.

A clause in the deal requires Arsenal to notify Real Madrid if an offer is made for the 27-year-old playmaker. The deal stipulates that Arsenal must offer Madrid outfit first refusal on the player, should a rival Spanish side make a move for his services.

The leak also revealed that Arsenal paid £36m for Ozil, less than the £42.5m fee reported by the club.

Arsenal missed out on topping the Premier League table after suffering a 1-0 loss against Chelsea in the London derby yesterday.

Mesut Ozil’s 100th game for the north London based club ended in a disappointing defeat. Arsenal have now slipped down to third place and are just two points ahead of their bitter rivals Tottenham.
