Özil left Real Madrid three years ago to win titles and try to lift the Ballon D’Or. Only three years after the dream is over and he has realized that it’s going to be very difficult to fight for big titles with Arsenal, who failed to win the Premier League in the last years and also to go through the final stages of the Champions League.
According to the German newspaper Bild Sport, Özil wants to leave Arsenal. Real Madrid or Bayern Munich will be his desired clubs, however it will b very difficult to accomplish the dream. Bayern boss, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is not very fond of the German offensive midfielder. And it looks quite unlikely that Real Madrid can think in buying back Özil having Isco, James Rodríguez or Marco Asensio in the same position.
Real Madrid sold Özil in the summer of 2013 for a transfer fee of €50M. It was one of the record transfer in the club. Next year, Real Madrid won the Champions League and sold Ángel di María to PSG for even more money.
In his three years at Arsenal, Özil has won two FA Cups and two Community Shields. He has scored 15 goals in these three seasons and he’s been one of the key players for the gunners, especially in his last season.
According to the German newspaper, Özil might accept an extension of his contract this year. Despite not fighting for big titles, the German playmaker is happy at Arsenal. He knows it will be very difficult to jump to Real Madrid or Bayern Munich and still thinks he can win titles with the gunners.
Özil played three full seasons at Real Madrid, from 2010 until 2013, coming from Werder Bremen. In his time spent in Spain he won one Liga, one Copa del Rey and one Spanish Supercup.
