Ballack: ‘Mesut Ozil Should Leave Arsenal For Bayern Munich’


Former Germany Captain and Chelsea Star Michael Ballack advises Mesut Ozil to leave Arsenal and join Bayern Munich if he wants to win trophies. The star midfielder’s contract expires June 2018, and this season Arsenal appears to be set to miss out on yet another Premier League title.

Ozil is being pursued by a number of big clubs, including PSG and Real Madrid. However, Ballack feels a return to his home country would give him the best shot at a title.

“If you are a top player in England, the cult around you is bigger than in Germany. You are treated more respectfully, especially. These are all reasons for an extension.

“But if he wants to win a major title, he has a bigger chance to achieve that at Bayern.”

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger said in December that the team would not sell Ozil, even if they do not reach an agreement for a new contract. However, Ballack believes Bayern is prepared to spend big and everything has its price right?
