Man United transfer news: Red Devils want Arsenal superstar in January but hold two major reservations

Premier League giants Manchester United are weighing up a move for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Man United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on re-signing his former player.

However, there are reservations at Old Trafford about signing the Germany international. Per the source Ozil’s high wage demands and work rate are concerns for the Red Devils.

Ozil played under Mourinho during his three-year spell at Real Madrid. The pair won the La Liga and League Cup during their time at the Spanish club.

The Mail goes onto state that Ozil is demanding wages of approximately £300,000 per-week.

Ozil hasn’t featured for Arsenal in the past two weeks due to a knee injury. The 28-year-old was also omitted from the Germany national team.

The Gunners who defeated Brighton 2-0 last weekend, take on Watford FC in their next Premier League clash on October 14.
