Arsenal not approached by Manchester United over Mesut Ozil, says Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger is adamant that Manchester United have not shown any interest in Mesut Ozil regarding a January move and reiterated his expectation that the German will stay at least until the end of the season.

Ozil will enter the final six months of his contract in January, meaning he will be allowed to negotiate with other clubs regarding a free transfer at the end of the campaign.

United have been linked as one of Ozil’s most likely destinations should he decide to not renew his deal, with his former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho recently refusing to rule out a move for the Germany star.

But Wenger was taken aback when it was put to him that United were reportedly interested.
