Mesut Ozil’s agent has insisted there is “no chance” the German midfielder will leave Arsenal this summer. Two men threatened to “kill” Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil Dr Erkut Sogut says Ozil will stay in north London at least until the expiry of his current deal in June 2021. The 31-year-old was linked with an exit from the Gunners in January after struggling for game time and form in the first half of the campaign. He has enjoyed an extended run in the side under Mikel Arteta but failed to have a meaningful impact on proceedings as Arsenal suffered late heartbreak in the Europa League at the hands of Olympiakos on Thursday night Arsenal record £27.1m losses for 2019 – and Europa League failure could make 2020 worse “At the moment, we don’t even talk about it, because he still has one-and-a-half-years left,” he told the i.Advertisement Loading… “He still has 15 months to go. Until then, he will stay at Arsenal, for sure. He will stay until the end of his contract. There’s no chance he’ll leave.” Ozil moved to the Emirates from Real Madrid in January 2013 for £42.5million. He penned his current terms in 2018 and earns in the region of £350,000-a-week at Arsenal. When he does leave the Gunners, Ozil would likely be inundated with lucrative offers from China and the USA, but Sogut says he will continue playing at the highest level as long as possible. “He is going into the end of this contract, he will be 32 years old, he will be a free agent, and it’s not a bad situation,” he added.

And he’s 32 so he can still go and play in top-level football for the next two or three years.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content18 Cities With Neverending Tourist-Flow7 Action Movies That’ll Give You An Adrenaline RushDid You Know There’s A Black Hole In The Milky Way?A Museum To Rihanna’s Glory Could Soon Be OpenedWhat Are The Most Delicious Foods Out There?The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Most players treat it as light relief and invite family or friends to act as their caddies, including the ‘Big Three’ of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player, who will be back together to hit ceremonial drives as honorary starters for the tournament proper on Thursday. Rory McIlroy had tennis star girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki on the bag, saying: “It’s very special. Caroline could have come last year but it did not quite work out, but I really wanted her to come and see what it’s all about.” Padraig Harrington missed out on a fourth victory in the traditional par-three contest on the eve of the Masters, but is unlikely to be too disappointed. Since the event started in 1960, nobody has ever become par-three champion and Masters champion in the same week, with Harrington continuing the ‘jinx’ after wins in 2003, 2004 and 2012 – although he twice had to share the title after bad weather prevented a play-off. The three-time major winner was in contention again when he posted a three-under 24, but then saw Ernie Els and Nick Watney finish on four under, Watney by making a hole-in-one on the ninth.
