Surprise : Arsene Wenger sign Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil for €50 million

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has decided to join the big spenders since he cant beat them. He announced club record signing of  €50 million on Real madrid and German 24 years old midfielder Mesut Ozil on the end of the summer transfer window.

Ozil reacted angrily to being substituted by Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti in the Liga win over Granada last Monday, storming straight into the changing room and heading straight for the team bus. He was then left out of the XI which beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1 on Sunday, prompting speculation over his future.

In a statement on his personal Facebook page, Ozil said: "Things developed differently than I would have expected them to a few days ago.

"Thank you very much for three wonderful years with all of you. My time at Real Madrid was unique and special for me.

"Although I’m leaving Real Madrid, I wish you and the team the very best for the future. Now I’m looking forward to my new club: THE GUNNERS!"

Ozil had stated publicly last week that he loved Real Madrid and was happy to stay at the club but he now begins his career as  Arsenal highest signing of all time.
