Arsenal star demands bumper wages as Barcelona and Manchester United circle

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are still in the dark over the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are both out of contract in the summer and Arsenal face a difficult dilemma in January.

Either they sell their two prize assets or risk losing them for nothing in the summer.

Mesut Ozil is looking increasingly likely to leave and he has already given his wage demands to other clubs, according to reports in Spain.

According to Spanish media outlet AS, Mesut Ozil is demanding €370,000 a week at Barcelona.

The Germany international, who is renowned for his intricate passing and ability to create chances for his team mates, is reportedly wanted by Barca, who are looking for reinforcements in midfield.

Barcelona are apparently willing to let Arda Turan leave in January, paving the way for Ozil’s potential arrival.

According to this report, Barcelona face competition from Manchester United, who are hoping to snap up Ozil in the summer when his contract expires.

But Arsene Wenger wants to block that move, as he would rather sell the 29-year-old in January than lose him for free in the summer – especially to another Premier League rival.
