Jose Mourinho is reportedly still pursuing Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, and is determined to make more room in the squad for introducing reinforcements.

The German’s contract extension talks have been up in the air for quite a long time now, with the Gunners failing to fasten the decorated midfielder perpetually. Those previous circumstances allude to the fact that the midfield maestro is plausibly looking for an exit from the Emirates.

With the former Real Madrid man’s prevailing contract meeting its deadline by the end of the season, Wenger has conceded he would ponder over selling the glorious figure in the winter window if they can’t come up to scratch to confirm a contract extension.

And purportedly, the team that happens to be most keen on singing the celebrated talisman is Manchester United.

Regardless, in the hopes of reducing the squad size and wage bill, the United gaffer previously had plans to sell a few players in the January window.

However, it seems Henrikh Mkhitaryan has also been marked on the list, as the ex-Chelsea boss intends to dump him for the Arsenal playmaker to make his way through, as per Mirror.

Moreover, in view of the fact that the German international would demand a massive wage at Old Trafford, it is more the reason to free up some area on the bench before swooping the talented midfielder.

Despite showcasing high-grade performances at the beginning of this year’s campaign, Mkhitaryan has fallen out of favour, with Mourinho declaring he has no space in the squad.

Moreover, the influential coach believes they could recoup the £30m he cost when they roped him in from Borussia Dortmund.

According to a few reports, Ozil is linked with Barcelona as well, but the Red Devils’ boss is intent on securing the 29-year-old’s services, and is likely to win the race for his signature.

Manchester United could increase their hopes of closing in on arch-rivals Man City if they possess an extra creative touch in their football. Ozil is expected to take up precisely that role, provided Mourinho is successful in signing him in the first place.
