Mesut Ozil has said he has no intention of retiring when he leaves Arsenal, with his preference being a move to Fenerbahce or Major League Soccer.

Mesut Ozil is willing to sacrifice £7m to leave Arsenal before his contract expires in June.

Ozil has offered to leave £7million on the table at Arsenal so he can cut his contract short and leave this January, says the Athletic.


The German, who earns a staggering £350,000-a-week, is scheduled to earn this huge amount between now and the end of his current contract in June.

Ozil is in talks with Arsenal about an early termination.

If a compromise can’t be reached, however, then the World Cup winner will have to see out the rest of his contract at Arsenal before leaving the club on a free.
