It has been revealed that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is serious in reuniting with Mesut Ozil.

According to The Independent, Mourinho is confident in convincing his former player Ozil who will be off contract in June to make a controversial switch to Old Trafford.

It is understood that Arsenal chiefs and Ozil’s representatives are in talks for a new deal at the Emirates but has hit a road block.

Arsene Wenger is desperate to hold on to Ozil who he always defended and kept faith despite his poor performances which have polarised Arsenal and football fans.

The transfer could happen as soon as January to avoid losing the German for nothing at the end of contract this summer.
