Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to make a shock bid for a superstar playing in the Premier League.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Portuguese tactician has identified Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil has a transfer target ahead of next season.
The German, along with teammate Alexis Sanchez, has been tipped to move on from the Gunners in the next transfer window.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup winner played under Mourinho at Real Madrid, although that is also where they had a fallout, as Ozil revealed in his recently released autobiography.
Arsenal could be forced to sell the playmaker in the next window if he refuses to renew his contract with them, as he could then leave for free in 2018.
The player will reportedly make a decision on his future once he finds out whether or not Arsene Wenger is staying at the Gunners.
Many fans and pundits believe United need few more star players for them to compete for the Premier League title.
Ozil has scored 30 times and assisted a further 54 strikes in 150 matches for Arsenal.
