Jose Mourinho confident Mesut Ozil will join United

According to reports, Manchester United are super confident they can acquire Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.

The German is in the final season of his deal at the Emirates having less than nine month before the expiration and is expected to say his goodbyes at the end of the season.

Ozil has not held contract talks with Arsenal since March and is free to commence preliminary talks with other clubs from January.

During pre-season, the 28-year-old claimed he prefers to remain with the Gunners and said negotiation will take place soon.

However, as per the Independent, there have so far been no indication of a new deal coming through, and that Jose Mourinho believes he can lure the German playmaker to Old Trafford due to their relationship at Real Madrid.

Ozil transferred to the Emirates from the Bernabeu side in 2013, but it increasingly looks as if the Gunners are set to lose the £42.5m they paid for Ozil.
