Mesut Ozil’s mesmerizing form for Arsenal this season has led to reports that the Germany midfielder will be rewarded with a bumper new contract, with the club-record £42.5 million paid to Real Madrid in 2013 now looking a terrible deal for Real Madrid.
The trouble is that Madrid seem to think so too, with Don Balon reporting that Los Blancos would consider re-signing the World Cup winner should James Rodriguez seek an exit from the Bernabeu amid claims of a bust-up with manager Rafa Benitez.
The Spanish outlet suggests that Madrid would be keen to bring back Ozil if they can settle on a reasonable price with Arsenal, and believe the playmaker now has the “maturity and consistency” they felt he lacked in Spain the first time around.
Arsene Wenger may want to speed up those contract talks at this rate.
